A Tribute Post For Sophie Partridge

June 8, 2017

I am so very sad to have just heard of the passing of Disability Rights Campaigner Sophie Partridge. We have been Facebook friends for three years. We never spoke to each other in person but she was easily recognisable- I am sure I’ve seen her at events, whizzing around in her wheelchair. I always wanted to speak to her but never took the chance. I wish I had taken the chance.

We supported many of the same campaigns- the passionate but unsuccessful campaign to save the Independent Living Fund in 2014/15 and in recent weeks, the Crip The Vote UK Campaign.

RIP Sophie. I will remember you as a Disability Rights Campaigner. My thoughts are with our many many mutual Facebook friends and all who knew her better than I did.

Please leave any thoughts, tributes or memories below if you knew Sophie.
