This Disability History Month (18 November- 20 December), Disability Support, in partnership with the Community Cohesion team at Nottingham City Council, wants to celebrate disabled people's lives and achievements through their new Positive Voices campaign.
The charity is looking for people with any impairment or disability, of any age and from all communities to get involved, by sending a video which answers the following questions:
- What is your name?
- How old are you?
- What is your disability or impairment? (Briefly explain how it affects you or what impact it has had)
- What is the most negative experience you have been through in relation to your disability? (Please keep this brief to avoid any triggers for people)
- How are you a positive disabled voice? Tell us about your achievements
- What positive words of encouragement or advice would you give to disabled youngsters?
How to submit your video
Video entries should be no more than 10 minutes long and shot in a quiet environment. Please do not use any bad language or derogatory terms. These videos will be used on Disability Support's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, as well as shared on their website.
Videos should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Information about providing consent
Please note, when you submit your video, this will be taken as you giving consent for all or part of your video to be used publicly for the promotion of the Positive Voices campaign now and in the future. Please be aware that Nottingham City Council will also be likely to use your video on their own social media channels.
