ILMI Cork City and County Platform: An Online Space for Disabled Adults

ILMI are working with disabled activists in Cork City and County to develop an online discussion space This online City and Country platform will be a shared online space for disabled adults that will include information on the various supports and services available in your local community, aiming to promote wellbeing and create more community connections. This online platform for Cork City and County replicates and approach used by ILMI in a number of other counties over the course of 2020.

These online spaces have proven invaluable for many disabled people to counter the challenge of physical isolation caused by Covid-19, by creating a shared social space for disabled people. County platforms are a mixture of social spaces, peer support, collective discussions on issues, local political lobbying strategies and inputs from local mainstream services which are available for disabled people.

The first ILMI Cork City and County platform will take place on Thursday the 17th September at 3pm. For more information email damienwalshe@ilmi.ie
