We are truly fortunate to have some really inspirational individuals volunteer to act as ambassadors for South Glos Parents and Carers. All have faced disability related challenges and share similar diagnosis to many of our children and young people in our community. They are inspiring as they have all achieved a great deal in their chosen area of expertise and are passionate about disability issues and are behind the great work that we do.
A huge thank you to them and we hope that you find them as insprational as we do.
