The Pagan Federation’s mission is to support all Pagans in ensuring they have the same rights as the followers of other beliefs and religions. Our main aim is to promote a positive profile for Pagans and Paganism through the provision of information and support to the media, official bodies and the greater community about Pagan beliefs and practices.
Pagans with disabilities encounter a wide range of obstacles, which can prevent them from practicing their beliefs, attending meetings, moots and events, or engaging fully with pagan communities. These posts exist to increase awareness and work towards overcoming barriers and challenges encountered by Pagans with disabilities within our districts.
You must be over 18 and a member of the Pagan Federation to apply. It is preferred that you have experience with either living with, or caring for, disabilities, but full training will be provided.
