We believe in a fair and inclusive world, where everyone can live as they choose. Our work has an impact on individuals, the public, organisations, and at national and global levels in order to reach this goal.

  • People can optimise their health and wellbeing.

Our actions

  • We support disabled people to claim their rights, access quality learning and work, and live as they choose.

  • We address additional barriers faced by girls and women.
