I have been a Co-chair of the Think Local Act Personal Partnership and I'm a big believer in co-production and advocate of disability rights. I am also an expert in accessibility issues working in a variety of sectors and disciplines. I have theoretical knowledge and training combined with personal experience and practical insights.
I work as consultant, auditor, trainer, and coach on inclusion, equality, disability, and related subjects and was named in Disability News Services' List of influential disabled people.
I sit on other boards and groups including the Coalition for Collaborative Care, HealthWatch Birmingham, Change People, and Community Navigator Services. In 2014 I received an MBE in recognition of my services to people with disabilities.
