Disabled People’s Action Group

Equality Together Bradford is a local user-led organisation for disabled people, their carers and families. Their services are currently available to people who live in the Bradford Metropolitan District. Some of their services include Self and Group Advocacy.

Non Statutory Self & Group Advocacy is about taking control of decisions about yourself and telling others what you want.

At Equality Together, their aim is to help you speak up and have your voice heard. They have a few ways of doing this.

One way of doing this is through the Disabled People’s Action Group. The Disabled People’s Action Group (DPAG) is a new group of people with physical disabilities, sensory impairments, mental health issues, learning disabilities and long-term illness. 

Their aim is to build on the work done by the Disabled People’s Forum, focusing on campaigning and highlighting issues concerning people with disabilities.

About Daniella-Jade Lowe

Hello everyone! Welcome to my page. My name is Daniella Jade Lowe. I am a university graduate with a BA degree focused on History and Politics from the University of Bradford, England. Journalism and Politics are my passion. I have even represented Bermuda at the London 2012 Paralympic Games as a reporter for Bermuda’s Paralympian Jessica Lewis. During the games I also assessed the level of Wheelchair Accessibility at the event. I am an emerging Journalist, Politician and Disability Advocate. My motive behind doing this was to be an advocate for people with disabilities. I have a disability. It does not completely define me; it just enhances me in a way which differentiates and strengthens me. My disability should be viewed as an ability: to see the world in a different way. As a wheelchair user, I have advocated for Wheelchair Accessibility in Bermuda, by writing various articles for numerous publications on the subject. I also have a blog where I also write about various disability related issues. During Middle School and High School, I used a Garaventa StairTrac to navigate the school for classes. In fact, one of the reasons why I pursued further education and started my career in England was due to Wheelchair Accessibility. During College, I became the Disability Officer for the Students’ Union and I advocated for the students with disabilities. On July 27, 2007, I was invited by former Premier of Bermuda Dr. Ewart Brown for a ‘Brown Bag Lunch’ to discuss issues like Wheelchair Accessibility amongst other things. I have also been sporadically involved with WindReach since I was young. This is how I amplify my voice for Wheelchair Accessibility! I am also skilled in Politics, Microsoft Excel, Customer Service, Microsoft Word, and Strategic Planning. Strong media and communication professional with a BA focused in History and Politics from University of Bradford.
