Family affairs relations to the issues surrounding the creation and management of families in all its forms, which can include members who have impairments.
My personal experience of families has been difficult for a number of reasons.
I have however not allowed my own negative experiences to stop me understanding the positive role families can play in the lives of people with impairments.
I have worked with many families to support them to better understand dysability related issues.
I have provided emotional and practical support to many families on a formal and informal basis.
I believe families have the right to be families as interdependent units, rather than being portrayed as carers and cared for.
I can provide a range of consultancy and training services in terms of family affairs.
