Disability History Month

Published 10th December 2020, in Blog, News & Updates, Uncategorised

“Access doesn’t just mean physical access, it’s so much more than that.” Our Deputy CEO Heather spoke with The National Lottery as they recognise access in its many forms during disability history month.

Along with Johnathan Mace who is head of communities at MHA, Heather spoke to The National Lottery Heritage team about how our heritage project ‘Heritage Ability’ which is funded by the National Lottery considers a variety of access needs.

“A phrase we use that comes to mind is ‘do nothing about us without us’. It’s so important to learn from disabled people themselves and understand differing needs.” (Heather Brown – Deputy CEO Living Options Devon)
