COVID-19 and the impact on the disabled community

Wednesday, 18 November, 2020 - 10:00 to 11:15

Join The National Lottery Community Fund and a panel of speakers as we discuss the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on disabled communities. We will also be sharing research from our recently commissioned report ‘Towards Equity’ on how funders can support and include disabled communities.

Chaired by Hannah Paterson, Senior Portfolio Manager at The National Lottery Community Fund, we will be hearing from disabled organisations about their experiences of the pandemic, how they worked in their communities through lockdown and how other organisations and funders can work to better support disabled organisations. Our panel will include voices from a variety of organisations from across the UK to help provide a broad range of insights and lived experience. You will also have an opportunity to directly put your questions to our panel.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted many of the challenges faced by the disabled community and has seen new ways of working and partnership in response. It is important we learn the lessons from the pandemic, ensure funding is accessible and the voices of disabled communities are heard and supported.
