The Solutions Series is series of pop up Think Tanks hosted by the Independent Living in Scotland project (ILiS).

Each Think Tank brings people together in co-production to seek solutions to a specific barrier to independent living.
This is the fourth report in the Solutions Series. “Mock The Weak – the representation of disabled people in the media” sought solutions to both the under representation and misrepresentation of disabled people in the media. This report reflects the discussion on the day and not necessarily the
views of ILiS.. You can read the full report HERE.
