Handicap International is often among the first to respond to natural disasters and crises, and we stay behind long afterwards to ensure that disabled people get the long term support they need. We have around 3,500 local staff supporting disabled and vulnerable people worldwide in countries affected by conflict, disaster and poverty.
Handicap International staff regularly offer their insight to the media. We have a wide range of expert spokespeople available for interviews with UK and international journalists. Our press team can facilitate access to Handicap International staff and projects and provide a wide range of high quality reports, case studies, photos and video.
