Step-by-step guide to living with disabilities e-book

We’ve created this e-book series following our realisation that the most inspiring and practical way to communicate advice and information is through the voices and stories of the people whose lives have been touched by disability.

Each edition will contain a new chapter covering a broad range of topics including independent living, assistive technology, supported living, enablement, and many more that we hope you will find useful and informative. The voices and experiences that you read in the chapters have been compiled by our staff from a series of face-to-face interviews and telephone conversations.
