From Can Do to you

So far 2016 has been busy for the young disabled members of our Can Do project!
Can Do provides the skills and knowledge for young disabled people to lead more independent lives and be socially active in the community.
We've been enjoying a range of activities throughout the country, and recently secured funding for the expansion of two slightly younger groups in rural areas of the country later this year.
Here are a few highlights of what we've been Can Do-ing!

Their photographs were displayed at The Photographer's Gallery as part of a Westminster City Council culture network event.
They also visited Portcullis House and learned how parliament works.
They sanded the chairs, cut out images from comics and old picture books and stuck them to the chairs before covering them in glue. They looked great!

The rap, entitled Normal, was written as part of their Building Communities programme and aimed to encourage people to think, ‘What is normal?’
The group ended up winning the YouTube award and were over the moon!
