Emma Livingstone is one of around 130,000 adults living with Cerebral Palsy in this country, making it one of the largest disability groups in the UK. A trained Speech Therapist and married with three children, Emma realised through her own experience that those suffering with CP are abandoned by the authorities once they turn 18. Frustrated for herself and for the others in her community she decided to go from 'complainer to campaigner' and founded the charity Adult CP Hub, to lobby for those much needed services to be provided as lifelong integrated care for adults with cerebral palsy.
Our host Lou Hamilton talks to Emma about her passion for positive change, her tenacity, her ability to own her condition and her drive to create a community that receives more recognition and support.
