Coffee Dates: Tackling Beliefs, Stigmas and Stereotypes Around Disability

Disability is often not spoken enough about, especially regarding commonly held beliefs around this subject, the stereotypes and the stigmas surrounding this term.

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes down to this subject, and Hamish Hallett is someone who wants to address them as much as possible and see a fundamental change in this field.

And so, on this coffee date, Hamish Hallett was joined by Charlie Randell from Not Quite Politically Correct (NQPC) to speak about their personal experiences surrounding disability and tacking beliefs, stigmas and stereotypes around this subject. It was a very unique and candid conversation with these two people as they explored various topics. This episode is worth listening to if you want to know more about disability.
