Showcase: Jameela Jamil spearheads PR for Why Not People launch

TV presenter Jameela Jamil established Why Not People as the first members' club for disabled people. It aims to make music events more accessible to those with disabilities and to create a wider debate in society around disabled access.

  • With no significant budget, WNP’s main asset was its celebrity ambassadors including Tempah, disabled reality TV star Sophie Morgan, Channel 4 journalist Alex Brooker,  and Paralympic athletes Jordanne Whiley, Hannah Cockroft, Hannah Russell and Giles Duley.
