Allyson Hamblett

Mapura Studios artist and staff member has recently been elected to the Local Advisory Committee (LAC) of CCS Disability Action. The LAC is responsible for developing policy that will guide the development of the Northern Region of CCS Disability Action. Allyson says ‘I feel as if I’m beginning to be recognised in the disability sector, to try and make society a better place for people. CCS Disability Action has given me a lot of support over the years, when it was the Crippled Children Society. So being able to give back is rewarding. I hope I can help CCS Disability Action to continue taking the stigma out of disability – particularly cerebral palsy.’
