On-line media project

Disability Rights UK would like to hear from members of the public who are planning to return to work following a serious illness. We have been asked to find participants for an online media project which will follow a group of individuals as they aim to make the return to either their previous roles or new careers. We are recruiting for a partner initiative that is hoping to chart the progress and challenges that people experience when trying to get back to work and also offer some insight to the financial implications and resources that could be available.

Places are extremely limited and interested parties will need to be prepared to be filmed and share their experiences for short films that will be available online. In return our partners are able to offer short term financial support, access to rehabilitation services and a host of other benefits. If you would like to find out more please emailThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
