Disability History Month illustrated book

a painting of performer and artist Deborah Williams

One of the most interesting publications of last year was produced by the Learning team in Parliament. It is a booklet for use in schools that contains stories of influential people who have impacted disability related UK laws and equal rights. Launched to mark Disability History Month 2020, this resource can be used throughout the academic year to embed the stories across the curriculum.

You can find out more on the Learning website (this is a link to the relevant page) or download the booklet as a PDF from this link in English or this link in Welsh

The image shows Deborah Williams. When Deborah, a performer and artist, established her own company to tell her stories, she became such a success that she was invited into Parliament to share her experience and skills with a select committee.
