I don’t have a profound disability, I’m not a full time carer, I wasn’t abandoned, neglected or abused as a child, I didn’t spend my childhood in care, I’m not homeless.
I’ve never been tortured, and I’ve never risked my life to stay alive. Some amongst us have.
I work with people who have already endured, or endure on a daily basis, more than many of us will face in a lifetime.
Sometimes vulnerable and socially disenfranchised people are treated like they simply don’t matter. I believe they do; and that is why I’m a Community Care Lawyer.
