Accessible Wales hosting a virtual conference on post COVID and the effects on Disabled People

International Day of Disabled Persons

A Virtual Conference on Post COVID and the effects on Disabled People

Impact of COVID on the Mental Health of Disabled People Event Logo

In 1992 the United Nations convened the annual International Day of Disabled People to be held annually on 3rd December.  This year’s day has a goal of spreading the awareness of invisible disabilities as well as the impact that COVID-19 has had on mental health.

Accessible Wales will be hosting a virtual conference looking at post COVID and the effects on Disabled People, the event is free, tickets can be obtained from our Eventbrite page.

As well as this we were thinking that maybe we could help a little in everyone’s lives. So #HelpForHealth is encouraging people to just look out for each other a little bit more.  These small gestures could be a FaceTime call to a family member or sending a letter to a friend.  We’ve all been through a rough couple of years and its made an impact on our mental health, lets pull together, share our ideas, spread the hashtag and make a difference.

Stay safe, keep your distance!

Stay safe, keep your distance!

Accessible Wales is supporting the 2m social distancing rule.  It is important that everyone maintains the key principals to keep the transition of the virus down.  That is why we have added the NHS Distance Aware badge to our website, our marketing and placed posters up in our office.

The important measures you need to carry out to help to stop the spread of this virus are:

  • Keep socially distant (2 metres or 6.5 feet away
  • Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds regularly using soap and water. Use antibacterial gel where that is not possible.
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Work from home if possible
  • Avoid using public transport
  • Wear facemasks indoors in public places or outdoors in crowded areas. There are some people who will be exempt from wearing facemasks you can visit this page on the Public Health Wales website to find out if you qualify.

With cases increases and winter on the horizon it is vitally important that we do all we can to ensure that we look after our health and the health of our friends and family.
