What is the Chronic Illness Inclusion Project?
Our project is led by disabled people living with energy-limiting chronic illness. The aim is to bring the chronic illness community together online to explore our shared experiences under a social model of disability, in the emancipatory research tradition.
Our research focuses on the lived experience of chronic illness rather than the medical perspective, and looks at how cultural attitudes and social organisation create unnecessary disadvantage to our wellbeing and life chances. This research will inform our manifesto for changing perceptions and policies towards chronic illness by 2020.
The Chronic Illness Inclusion Project is part of an emerging Citizen Network, for a world where everyone can be an equal citizen.
