Our creative focus groups are an opportunity to influence a completely new publication about invisible disabilities and to talk about issues that are important to you.


About the focus groups


If you would like to see increased awareness and empathy around the issues of living with an invisible disability, then please come and be part of our creative focus groups.

We will be discussing ideas and themes that are important to you and looking at initial designs of a new, illustrative book which shares the experiences of real people living with invisible conditions.

We have two types of focus groups where we would love your input. One is for those who live with an invisible disability or condition (Oxford) and the other is for the friends and family of someone living with an invisible disability (Reading and Crawley). Both are open to anyone who is over 16 years old.

The focus groups will provide a safe and supportive space where you can come and express yourself without judgement and input into a completely new publication that aims to open up conversation and encourage more compassion in our communities. 

  • There are only 12 places per group and please sign up in advance

  • We’ll be serving some free refreshments (tea, coffee etc)
