Breaking down barriers for Deaf and Disabled People
BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS
My aim is to bring autonomy and agency back to Deaf and disabled people in being able to claim disability benefits as independently as possible. I want customers to feel that they are in control of their claims, understand the information, and as a result are more successful in their applications.
I also run LGBT+ inclusion workshops hoping this will lead to places becoming more inclusive whether this is in the workplace, education, or in general society. We have the right to be treated fairly and have equal access to every aspect of our lives. My hope is to bring not just greater awareness but to support organisations' inclusion and opportunities to people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
I strive to ensure my content and work is accessible, so if you can't access any of my content or have specific requirements for a session, please email me and I will adapt as required!
PUTTING DEAF AND DISABLED PEOPLE FIRST
While you’re here on my site, take a look at some things I have to offer.
Disability Benefit Consultations
I offer help and consultations for PIP disability claims in the UK as well as Disability Allowance for those in Ireland. For more information please go to my page on disability benefits support. I help anyone who is considering applying, whether you are working out whether you are eligible, are about to start your claim or have your renewal coming up.
If money is tight, don't worry! Contact me and we will see what we can do!
LGBT+ Inclusion Training
I offer Deaf and disabled inclusion training to both small and corporate organisations. It can be difficult to know what as an organisation you can do to improve disability and D/deaf access - so I am there to help, whether it's Disability 101 for new staff, seeing what physical change need to be made, or more in-depth knowledge in order to effectively run events that are accessible
