Right now, disabled people are facing too many barriers.
Barriers preventing them from being everything they can be. Physical barriers, social barriers, barriers of misunderstanding, of discrimination.
At Sense, we believe this is wrong and that’s why we’re calling on you to support our new campaign.
Because when we unite, incredible things can happen. Together we can do everything in our power to break the barrier – whatever that barrier may be.

What barriers do disabled people face?
- Physical barriers – inaccessible locations and equipment, no transport or lack of support to attend or take part in visits or activities
- Communication barriers – information not being provided in an accessible format like large print or braille
- Barriers of misunderstanding – making assumptions about a person based on their disability
- Barriers of discrimination – excluding someone because of their disability
Help us break the barrier
Try signing your name!
One way to break down some barriers is to be able to sign your name. It can really reassure people that know British Sign language (BSL).
