WELCOME to our NEWS PAGE!
One of the key objectives of BADIG is to empower people with disability by sharing information on relevant developments and issues in our local and national community. Information is vital to enable us to advocate more effectively for equality of access to all areas of society and to avail ourselves of the full range of facilities and supports that are available.
We hope that this News Page will help us to continue to do this, especially during the current days of social distancing. On this page we will share information about recent and upcoming events, organised by ourselves and other relevant groups. We will also share news about developments in society which affect the lives and rights of people with disability.
We also invite contributions from our readers and followers about news items which are important and relevant to our target community and stakeholders. If you wish to contribute in this way, please email brief details to email@example.com and we will take it from there!
We also welcome any comments or feedback on the News Page, and on our website in general!
