At Changing Our Lives, we know from experience that no-one is too disabled or too affected by mental health difficulties to lead an ordinary life.

Non-disabled people often take for granted certain things such as having a partner, a good job, or living in one’s own home. These are ordinary and everyday things that make up our lives. Disabled people and people with lived experience of mental health difficulties are often faced with barriers which make these everyday, ordinary things very difficult to achieve. Our Ordinary Life stories showcase what is possible when people have the support and resources to live the lives they want to lead.
