Johnny emerges into the light

When Johnny finished school in Bathurst last year, it was as if a door had slammed shut on the outside world – literally.

Saturday night’s alright for partying!

Robbie loves nothing more than getting together with his mates on a Saturday night. Not too much of a challenge for most young men – but for Robbie it has taken his entire life to reach this point.

Lady of the lantern lights a path for others

When Lismore held its annual Lantern Parade, on Saturday, 23 June 2018, Poppi was front and centre with her own hand-made lantern after almost a year being actively involved as a lantern-maker with parade organiser lightnUp Inc.

Independent living suits Grace to a ‘T’

When Grace finished school a few years ago, all she wanted to do was move out of home, crank up the music and live her own life. Pretty much the same as many other young adults keen to begin leading an independent lifestyle – except that in Grace’s case she has mild cerebral palsy, a mild intellectual disability and epilepsy.

Phil’s magic garden full of feathered friends

Phil has been living with an acquired brain injury (ABI) and Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) for 24 years. Since acquiring his disability, he has always managed to be independent, living in his own home in the Northern Rivers region of NSW.

Joy and Keith breathe easy as Vicki flexes her wings

Vicki (48) has lived at home in Lismore with her parents all her life. She has a bright and bubbly personality but needs substantial support on a day-to-day basis and, with Joy’s capacity to provide care diminishing, the burden fell on Keith.

If you ask Annette the best thing about her first National Disability Insurance Scheme plan, you won’t hear so much about how it’s helped her – but a lot about how it’s helped her beloved old guide dog Delta.
