Mental ill health, addiction, autism and learning disability are issues which, directly and indirectly, affect many in our society. Yet, people facing these challenges continue to experience serious levels of health inequality, stigmatisation and discrimination.
Inspire’s campaigning work is dedicated to overcoming these societal challenges, ensuring that all people can live as equal citizens. We focus on: raising awareness of issues relevant to mental ill health, addiction, autism and learning disability; educating the public on these areas; and contributing to the formulation and implementation of relevant policy. Crucially, our campaigns are driven by a commitment to working alongside people with lived experience. Through this approach, we give voice to the concerns and recommendations of those best placed to understand the issues.
