Advocate for disability

I had the great privilege of working with and alongside people with disability for nearly 30 years working hard to establish social enterprises that aspired to offer real, meaningful employment.  These enterprises were early adopters of Person-centered approaches, the application of Social Role Valorisation (SRV) and dignity of risk principles.
