Got My Back – planning a new postural awareness campaign
As a result of the Got My Back conference in September 2016 people have come together from across the country to write a national postural care strategy. Sitting alongside this work, Changing Our Lives has been funded by Awards for All to run a postural care awareness campaign, aimed at the general public, disabled people and families. We are producing a series of short films which will form the basis of a social media campaign and we also will be visiting London, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol, bringing disabled people and families together to raise awareness.
Work is underway to recruit a disabled person and a family carer, both with lived experience of postural care difficulties, to lead this awareness campaign. If you would like to be part of the campaign or think you could play a leading role, please ring us on 0300 302 0770 or email Rosalind at firstname.lastname@example.org
