Anne does not identify as a disabled person, and sees her activism as being alongside the disabled people’s movement. Her late husband was Ken Lumb, a founder member of the Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People, GMCDP.
GMCDP is working closely with Archives+ to establish the Disabled People’s Archive, alongside this activism.
