Disability and I is a charity set up by Niamh Herbert and Laura Beston, two students in Ireland with different disabilities.
Our objective is to provide awareness for the people of Ireland about the different disabilities here in our society, and to provide a platform for the advocacy of rights for people with disabilities. A kind of ‘for people with disabilities, by people with disabilities” platform.
We are people with disabilities AND abilities, and with the right support will shine and help us in achieving our goals and dreams but by refusing us our rights we then become disabled. We are providing a platform for people to fight for their rights, for people to be informed on their rights and to provide people with the information they need to lead a happy fulfilled life with a disability.
