Strengthening Voices, Realising Rights
The Strengthening Voices, Realising Rights initiative was launched by Trust for London in 2018 to support the capacity of Deaf & Disabled People’s organisations (DPPOs) to protect, promote and advance Deaf and Disabled rights.
Besides bolstering DPPOs’ capacity to mobilise for rights and inclusion, the initiative invests in skills and learning, and in promoting more inclusive philanthropic practices. In line with the “nothing about us without us” principle, all aspects of the initiative and all stages in the grantmaking processes are led, executed, and co-produced with disabled people.
The initiative forms part of Trust for London’s contribution to progressing the SDGs, and was featured in the EFC publication “European Philanthropy at the Nexus of Disability and the SDGs“.
