Why it Matters
The World Health Organization defines disability as a limitation in activity of daily tasks. The rate of disability is growing. It can strike at any age. Good chance you or someone you know has a disability that significantly affects daily life. Which is why Disability Matters was created.
Disability Matters was created by Lee Tasker as a supportive resource for not only the people living with disability, but also their surrounding network of family and friends. We’re a public voice meant to further the discourse on topics relating to disability and the issues that arise. Disability Matters is not only here to be a voice, we’re also here to listen. Community members can share with us their stories on living with disability, where topics can be discussed in an open and supportive environment.
