WinVisible (Women with Visible and Invisible Disabilities)

December 2, 2009

We serve all women regardless of age, race, religion, and disability – visible or invisible.

Our grassroots multi-racial group is an independent voice for women with disabilities of all ages, situations and backgrounds:

· Self-help information to enable women and children with disabilities to get benefits, homecare, health care, equipment, transport, training and other resources – overcoming attitudes that we should manage without help, regardless of the physical cost to us, and that those of us who are women of colour or immigrant, deserve even less. We tackle many different problems, raise awareness, and often win.

· As homecare users, we are active on charging and rationing of homecare and other services.

· As women refugees or seeking asylum, who have disabilities, pressing for the right to stay, and the same resources and consideration that all of us with disabilities should have.

· Our Refugee Project enables women refugees and women seeking asylum, who have disabilities and/or long-term ill-health, to overcome deprivation and exclusion, increase public awareness of the problems we face, and improve provision.

· We are active in solidarity with women gas survivors in Bhopal, India (see and take part in the Global Women’s Strike on 8 March, International Women’s Day, and actions throughout the year.
