Empowering others

We recently interviewed Martyn Sibley as part of our #InclusiveHealth insights series. Martin is a businessman, active blogger and wheelchair user, who was born with a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

He chatted with Molly Watt and shared his experience of what it was like growing up and how things changed for him as an adult.

It's fair to say that Martyn and Molly shared some similar experiences in their transition from child to adult health services.

He also explored the social model of disability, looking at how we might remove barriers by changing attitudes and through  education. The full interview is available in audio format at the WeAreSigmaTV YouTube channel.

 

"When I hit 18, the services fell off a cliff and suddenly there were no adult consultants locally that were aware of SMA"
