Chronic Illness & Citizenship

Mobilising a collective voice for social change

Lead: Catherine Hale
With: Stef Benstead

This research project, which has been supported by the lottery funded DRILL project, aims to explore:

  • How do people with chronic illness interpret the social model of disability?
  • What does independent living mean for people who are excluded from participation due to severe illness?
  • Can we mobilise the online chronic illness movement into a public platform for better representation and influence?
  • What are the priorities of people with chronic illness for social change?
  • What are the possibilities and obstacles for people with chronic illness to participate in disability rights movements?
