Joseph Wastell the founder and organiser of Disability Medway Network

Disability Medway Network was first set up to act as a forum for people with disabilities, their friends, families and/or carers to discuss their experiences of disability in Medway After getting funding from involving Medway and Kent community foundation, I put on my first networking event which was attended by thirteen groups and charities.  After that, I decided to call the group Disability Medway Network. Now we are a signposting group and work with other groups and charities to, raise awareness of both hidden and physical disabilities, to campaign on stuff affecting disability and encourage people with disabilities to take a more active part in society.
