Sinn Féin Equality and Human rights spokesperson Martina Anderson is encouraging people to attend a major conference on disability which she is hosting in the city on Friday.

The Foyle MLA was speaking ahead of the conference entitled – ‘Disability is our Responsibility’ – which will take place in Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin.

“The conference will explore the difficulties encountered by people in this city who are living with disabilities,” Ms. Anderson said.

“There will be a number of contributions from people who are working within the field and those who will share with us their experience of living with disability.

“The event is all about sharing experiences and lessons and hopefully we can all take something from it including practical things that we can all do to take responsibility for disability – things which we can then take back into our lives and into our communities.

“Everyone is welcome and I would urge as many peoples as possible to attend.”
