My name is Danielle Farrel, I'm 29 and I have cerebral palsy. As I'm approaching the end of my PhD at uni, I am looking into starting my own business, using my experiences of living with a disability to help and advise others.
Potentially the services that I would like to offer include advocacy, training for support workers and care providers and to share my experiences of living with a disability in general, to assist other service users, parents, family carers and employed carers. All of these services will potentially be delivered by myself in the first instance which I think gives my potential business its unique selling point as I will deliver services from a service user's perspective.
My reason for writing this post is to ask you guys for some feedback. Do you think this service would be useful? What aspect of the service would you be likely to use? Are there any gaps in the service I potentially want to provide? Is there anything I could do better to fill the gaps in existing services? This and any other feedback will be much appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you.
