Today’s guest post is from a young man I have worked with and have tremendous admiration for. Martyn works hard to inspire, inform and change the world round disability issues. He has a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy which might prevent him from walking, but doesn’t prevent him from living an exciting and purposeful life! Over to Martyn …
If you love socialising, travel or adventure; then this is definitely for you!
In November 2010, two disabled guys from London, on a roadtrip in California, dreamt up a huge project they wanted to bring to the world. Imagine two lifelong friends, two electric wheelchairs, two Personal Care Assistants, a hoist and an accessible car stirring up a big cocktail of imagination and innovation, during a dream adventure.
This idea was to start an online disability lifestyle magazine like no other…
After months of working hard to turn the vision into a reality; Martyn Sibley and Srin Madipalli launched http://disabilityhorizons.com/. Disability Horizons pioneers an innovative 21st century approach to disability by empowering an aspirational community to provide and share content that informs, inspires and entertains.
The Disability Horizons community is already 20,000 strong mostly through its social media channels, their readers write the articles, share their wealth of disability knowledge and progress towards their individual dreams together. Articles include personal stories on employment, sport, travel and relationships. The guys share many of their own daring escapades and have regular article contributions from high profile organisations, service providers, politicians, celebrities, entrepreneurs and various opinion formers that have the power to shape and change lives.
There is a page for readers to pose their own questions, an area to post unwanted disability items (the classifieds section), a resources profile page for disability companies to share useful products/services, and the Disability Horizons ‘Travel Zone’.
