Honourable Mentions – Social Media
Many people have taken to social media instead of a traditional blog to share their stories and experiences. Here are some great ones from social media!

Jennie’s popular Instagram account is a place for her to document her daily life in a wheelchair. She has a following of over 20,000 and shares what she is up to, including recipes, make-up and pyshio. Last year she spoke to Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 about the importance of having usable red emergency cords and she continues to spread the message of the benefit of using our Red Cord Cards to help make accessible toilets safer.
