A Whole Family Approach – Life without limits

Posted on

In the fifth and final episode of Stronger Voices Together, Lucy and our guests discuss the obstacles faced by families of D/deaf, neurodiverse, and disabled children and young people in accessing the opportunities that so many take for granted.

Join us as guests share their valuable lived experience as parents, and the organisations working with them, to address what more can be done to ensure inclusion is meaningful for the whole family unit.
