In My Own Words

The voices of disabled people are often missing from histories of disability. This is certainly the case in the historical collections at Wellcome Collection. We want to make sure it doesn’t continue to happen, so we are offering disabled people a platform to share their priorities, their concerns and their lived experiences of health through stories as told by them.
