I’m back! – My activism goals for 2021

Hey there, happy new year – missed me? It has definitely been strange not writing but I stopped the urge to come back early, it was hard I can tell you. But I am all rested and ready to get my wheels stuck back into things, I love nothing more than a fresh diary toContinue reading “I’m back! – My activism goals for 2021”

Forgotten Minority – Accessible Advent

Those two words ‘forgotten minority’ you would think if you shouted these two words from the roof tops people would hear, listen and ask why do you feel this way, but over the years it’s been proven not to be the case. It’s a cycle that seems to repeat itself over and over that makesContinue reading “Forgotten Minority – Accessible Advent”

Yes at first glance, this seems like an unlikely candidate for a ‘world day’ and more like some sort of joke, but the day isContinue reading “A crappy situation but a basic need!”

25 years on – The Disability Discrimination Act how far have we come?

It’s 25 years since the Disability Discrimination Act became law, but the campaign for equality goes on! Passed on 8 November 1995 I was just 16 years old and very much clueless to a Community struggling in a world that discriminated against disabled people in regards to employment, education, transport, or goods and services.
