Remember this December
Help Independent Lives to end social isolation for disabled people this winter. Support our campaign and Remember this December.
Nearly two-thirds of disabled people report feeling chronically isolated. More than two-thirds say that social isolation is affecting their mental health. We think this should change.
We want to empower disabled people to build connections, new friendships, develop new skills and support each other to live independent lives.
By donating or supporting us to raise funds this winter, you will help us to fund the activities that support disabled people and prevent social isolation.
Disabled people are four times as likely to feel isolated than non-disabled people.
These rates are even higher for younger disabled people with the greatest disparity appearing in those aged 16-21.
Social isolation isn't a choice. Disabled people have less access to social opportunities than non-disabled people.
