Organisations/ Groups of Interest

Disability and Jesus(UK Based)

"Disability and Jesus began with the premise that so far much of what has been written on disability theology has been written from an observational view point, not from someone living within a disabled body, struggling with the day to day of all that that can bring...."

Through the Roof (UK)

"The charity's name (through the roof) comes from the Bible account in which some men broke through the roof to help their disabled friend meet Jesus (Luke 5). This organisation recognises that every person is made in the image of God and has inherent value and worth, which includes people who have personal experience of disability."

Joni and Friends (US)

"For the past 40 years, it has been our mission to present the hope of the Gospel to people affected by disability and their families... We energize the church, moving people from lack of awareness to including everyone into the fabric of worship, fellowship, and outreach. We also train and mentor people with disability to exercise their gifts of leadership and service in their churches and communities."
