Resources on disability
30 September 2019 IN: Parish News
One strand of our diocesan vision, to be Church for a Different World, is to work for a world where people with disabilities, cognitive conditions and various forms of dementia are not seen as 'less than' in any way, but as people with unique gifts, insights and wisdom borne of their experience. A world where all are valued for who they are.
We are developing a set of resources to help churches be aware of the needs of people with disability, and create environments where everyone is welcome and valued. Find out more on our Disability page.
About 17% of people in the UK live with a disability of some kind. 95% of us will experience some form of disability during our lifetime. The diocesan Disability Task Group develops policies and resources to help establish a Church where everyone is welcome and everyone’s gifts and insights are valued and used.
