From Shape Arts:
'NDACA is a £1-M Heritage Lottery Fund project, delivered by Shape Arts, which tells the radical story of the Disability Arts Movement, when a group of disabled people and their allies made great art and helped change the law'. Visit THE-NDACA.ORG or www.shapearts.org.uk to find out more about our work in breaking the barriers to creative excellence.
The South South Institute recognises that adults and children with disabilities face increased risk and vulnerability, and are therefore several times more likely to experience sexual violence, abuse and exploitation. Research also indicates that children and adults with disabilities, and their families often face significant barriers to accessing services, and are consequently less likely to access protective and support services. We are committed to developing and supporting initiatives to address these disparities, to ensure that people with disabilities receive the protection and support they deserve. This page includes some useful reports and resources which can help increase our understanding of the issues, and become more inclusive in our work. Please contact us at SSI for further information and support to address inclusion issues.
