Humare Avaaz (Our Voice) will focus on Asian women whose disability falls into one or more of the following broad categories:  physical disability; learning disability or mental health or long-term health condition (as a result of their status, for example, an unpaid and unsupported carer.)  The life experiences and views of a representative population of disabled Asian women from different communities will be gathered.  The project will concentrate on documenting positive outcomes and successful stories where Asian women have overcome barriers and whose experiential knowledge will offer lessons or suggestions for changes to social policy.

The 15 month project will be coproduced by Asian People’s Disability Alliance (APDA), Apna Ghar and the Brent Indian Association.
