    112 Grace Eyre Profile Series - Listening To The Voices That Matter Most

    Everyone should have the right to decide their own future but too often people with additional needs simply aren't given a voice.  In this episode my two guests are Cleo Dibb,  the Our Voices Manager and Jenny Good who was involved in the Rethink Disability campaign.  Both are discussing the imperative of giving people the opportunity to share their lived experience, be listened to and be actively involved in all the decisions that impact on their lives.

    Getting into paid employment is a major challenge for people with additional needs. Programs that support people to develop their employability skills and enable them to break down the barriers into work play an essential role.  In this episode with Evie Halligan and Stuart Leaney we discuss the Work Buddy and Let’s Work Together projects run at Grace Eyre, how these operate, the challenges, the successes and why getting into paid work is so important in enabling people to live more independent lives.
