Easy English Photovoice Project page

This page is about a research project.

The research is about planning communities to be inclusive of people with disabilities.

When we say disability, we mean all disabilities including chronic illness.

When we say community we mean the area where you live. Your home. 

For example, you live in a suburb in the Clarence City Council area.

When we say inclusive we mean you have the same opportunities to participate in everyday things in your community like everyone else.

We want to make communities inclusive for everyone.

The Photovoice Project

A Photovoice project uses photos or video to show people what something means.

Like what is an inclusive community.

You then tell a researcher about the photos.

This is called a chat with a researcher.

You can have a chat with the researcher by yourself.


You can have a chat with the researcher in a group.

You choose.
