Why can’t I access a smear test?

Let’s talk…. This is a subject we need to talk more openly about, and that does mean ALL genders. it’s not a subject we should or can shy away from – yes it’s one of those taboo subjects that people in all walks of life struggle to talk about.

Why are people afraid?

Disability/impairment – what is it that scares people? It is a question I would love to get my wheels stuck into with a room full of people and ask why?

Once you have an accessible home that works for you I.e wet room (walk in bathroom) wide doors, accessible kitchen with a rise and drop sidesContinue reading “Accessibility within your home.”
