    Introduction

    Introduction

    In this episode, Jake Briggs introduces us to the My Home, My Way podcast… For us people with disability, living in our own home isn’t something we can just take for granted. Often, we have to make it happen - by ourselves, with our family and our allies. In this podcast series called My Home My Way. You’ll hear from people with disability and their families who are bypassing the traditional ‘group home.’ You’ll hear about housemates, renting or owning a home, finding new ways to support someone, how people with developmental disability and their family make a house a home and how to safeguard for the future.
