Manchester Lived Experience Leaders

We are a team of 13 Deaf and disabled people working to change things in Manchester.

We started work in April 2023 and we are funded for three years by Manchester City Council.

Our aims are to:

  • Work with system leaders to change things
  • Undertake peer group work on key barriers experienced by our community
  • Take part in follow up actions / workstreams
  • Undertake training and development
  • Support Breakthrough UK to develop disabled influencers and leaders of the future

Things we are working on at the moment:

  • Better inclusion in the culture and arts industries
  • How to develop leadership skills for Deaf and disabled people who have experienced repeated discrimination and trauma

If you are a service or organisation and want to work with us to remove barriers for Deaf and disabled people please get in touch.
