‘MISSING SPACES’ FOR INCLUSION AND EQUALITY E


VER SINCE MASIS was established in 2006 the charity has remained totally focussed on emphasising the


importance of improving inclusion and equality of disabled people within society. (Regrettably as its Founder I have received considerable amounts of criticism from numerous sources during the last 14 years and accused of being too diverse with my approach towards wanting to improve lifestyles and wellbeing of disabled people and their carers). Fortunately, the negative comments


received have been counteracted by many positive and very encouraging responses. It has been during my attendance as a guest speaker or exhibitor at numerous national disability events as well as serving in an advisory capacity on certain central and regional government healthcare and disability related forums (especially between 2005 and 2013) that senior academics and members of the medical profession I have discussed issues with have agreed there is certainly a need to create more inclusive and equal societies for disabled people. By doing so will help address the social ‘model’ of health and wellbeing and WILL FILL IN THE MISSING SPACES WITHIN THE ‘JIGSAWS OF LIFESTYLES’ experienced by disabled people. During the last 5 years I have been able to


establish more collaborating relationships with senior academic personnel at several universities (and such relationships are increasing). They strongly endorse the importance of social inclusion and equality. All the academics work within the universities’ schools of nursing, social care and other life sciences disciplines. Potential new opportunities are being considered and these relate to assistive technology and design and will address subjects ranging from housing and independent living to personal transport requirements of disabled people.

Thank Them All www.masis.org.uk


NETWORK AND COLLABORATE The overall response received from the


many companies and manufacturers MASIS has contacted during the last 14 years remains very disappointing.


PERHAPS NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE NOTE!


As there is an approximate total of 12


million disabled people and 9 million carers living in the United Kingdom and that their ANNUAL SPENDING POWER IS ABOUT £260 BILLION, MASIS remains keen to develop commercial relationships to help fund and expand the charity in the future and allow it to achieve its objectives. (IMPROVING LIFESTYLES OF DISABLED PEOPLE IS ALSO A GLOBAL ISSUE) CONSEQUENTLY, if representatives from


companies as well as from the healthcare and academic sectors who maybe reading this article wish to collaborate with MASIS, PLEASE SEND DETAILS USING THE CONTACT FORM DISPLAYED ON WWW.MASIS.ORG.UK


Thank you, Peter Lyne Founder of MASIS
