What the children & young people say ...
"I used to think that disabled people were different but now I know that we are all the same".

"Thank you very much for coming to our school! I must admit, that at first I was a little scared and worried and didn’t know what to think. But as the lesson went on I began to understand and realize that your life is no different to ours, things just take a little longer for you. So again, thank you very much for visiting, as I really learnt a lot from the experience!"
Polly, pupil at Chichester High School for Girls, West Sussex
