Online joining coming soon
Online joining is soon to be available on this site, and we are putting our existing members’ details up first before opening our online club to newcomers. In the meantime, if you wish to join our club, please visit us again around the miiddle of June.
Welcome, one and all, to our Microcosm of Acceptance: a dynamic club for disabled people determined to enjoy their lives to the full.
What we do:
- we offer personal peer support, encouragment, privacy and respect
- we work together to create social events, workshops and campaigns
- we take what we learn from our members to inform and advise health and social care professionals.
The Outsiders Club has hundreds of members all over the UK and some abroad. We welcome new people.
Our members have all kinds of physical and social impairments.
They all have the capacity to handle their own affairs.
We run the
Sex and Disability Helpline from 11am until 7pm weekdays on
07770 884 985
Calls are taken from both disabled people and health care professionals.
We also run
SHADA, the Sexual Health and Disability Alliance,
which has meetings twice a year in London.
We have created the
Sexual Respect Tool Kit.
Whenever possible, Outsiders works together with other groups to address the sexual isolation faced by many disabled people, and frustration which results, and to campaign for the acceptance of disabled people as sexual partners.
