About

My name is Hoi Fei and I am an ordinary mum to a boy with Down's Syndrome. As with many families of children with disabilities, I would like my child to experience life to the full and to be able to do things that his peers can do. However, I found it particularly difficult, and time-consuming, to find after school lessons or clubs that are willing to include children with disabilities. Unfortunately even my local authority had very little information about anything out of school.

I had been thinking of setting up a directory site to offer information about accessible and inclusive activities, classes, clubs and holiday accommodation. However,  I did not know how to go about it until I met Heather from Khoo Systems Limited and it turned out that we had the same vision! She offered to support the design and development of the directory using the Church Pages' platform. And so our journey began…

Aim of Disability Freedom

To provide an easy to navigate, one-stop shop for families of disabled people to find disability-friendly local, and national services including:

  1. Out of school classes (such as music, arts, swimming, gymnastics, drama, etc)
  2. Wrap around childcare
  3. Clubs for children and adults
  4. Parks and leisure facilities
  5. Respite care
  6. Faith groups
  7. Holiday accommodation

These services can be mainstream or catered solely for people with disabilities.

We hope that you are blessed by Disability Freedom, and that it will help you and your child to experience life to the full.
