Able2UK and Apparel Brand ICON|XXII Join Forces to Launch ‘Stop the Shadows’ T-Shirt Range, Raising Awareness for Loneliness in the Disabled Community.

Able2UK is proud to announce its partnership with apparel brand ICON|XXII to launch a ground-breaking range of ‘Stop the Shadows’ T-shirts. This collaboration aims to raise awareness about the prevalent issue of loneliness within the disabled community and promote inclusivity and support. Loneliness is a significant challenge faced by many individuals with disabilities, often resulting from social isolation, limited accessibility, and societal barriers. 

Howard Thorpe, CEO and Founder of ABLE2UK said: “It’s an honour to form a partnership with ICON|XXII who have designed this amazing range of Tees. Loneliness in the disabled community is a matter which needs to be discussed more, people are suffering feeling isolated and, in extreme circumstances, taking their own lives.

The fashion industry, which prides itself in paving the way, has gradually started to highlight the struggles some disabled people have with dressing.

We have seen a move forward with major brands launching their own accessible clothing ranges, but this is the first time a clothing company has addressed such an important issue.

The ‘Stop the Shadows’ tees are made of high quality fabric, anyone wearing one is sure to stand out from the crowd, and definitely won’t feel isolated.”

Hayley Santus, CEO and Founder of ICON XX said: “We are thrilled to partner with Able2UK to launch the ‘Stop the Shadows’ T-shirt range. Able2UK and ICON|XXII recognize the urgent need to address loneliness and have come together to create a powerful campaign that encourages empathy, understanding, and connection. The ‘Stop the Shadows’ T-shirt range features a unique design that symbolizes unity and solidarity. The shirts are crafted with high-quality materials, ensuring both comfort and durability. By wearing these T-shirts, individuals can proudly display their support for the cause and spark conversations about the importance of combating loneliness within the disabled community. Able2UK and ICON|XXII are committed to making a positive impact and fostering a more inclusive society.”

Loneliness is a pressing issue that affects countless individuals within the disabled community. Through this collaboration, we aim to raise awareness, promote inclusivity, and encourage meaningful connections. Together, we can make a difference and create a more supportive environment for everyone. Able2UK and ICON|XXII encourage individuals, disability advocates, and supporters to join the movement, wear the T-shirts proudly, and share their stories on social media using the hashtag #StopTheShadows.
