WinVisible is a multi-racial community group of women with visible and invisible disabilities: polio, sickle cell anaemia, osteo-arthritis, mental health issues, cancer . . . from different backgrounds: asylum seekers, refugees, other immigrants, UK-born. Through WinVisible, disabled women meet and support each other, overcome isolation and discrimination, and often win what we are entitled to. We provide self-help information and advocacy, on benefits, accessing health, transport and support services, on homecare charges and many other problems, against discrimination, including in employment. Our self-help benefit rights information helps many people to win their disability benefits, defend themselves against benefit sanctions, bedroom tax & eviction, Council Tax bills, to know their rights as Council and private tenants, and take up community care rights as disabled asylum seekers and immigrants.
