Aha - well pointed out Mimi!!
I should have explained more - my interest is
how imprisonment is experienced by people with physical and/or sensory
I've actually been working on this for years, and have written the chapter
on 'Disability in Prison' for The Prisons Handbook (ed Mark Leech) since
the early 2000s!
I know there must be some kind of organisation or similar as there is a
conference every year in the UK somewhere, but even though I am physically
disabled (wheelchair user) I don't really engage fully in groups or events or
anything really related to the disabled community so to speak - mainly
because of time and lack of transport/assistance - but that is something
Anyway, what this all boils down to, is that I am ashamedly and
regrettably ignorant and unaware of what is going on out there in the big wide world
of disability issues these days :0(
Many many grateful thanks to you and everybody else who has kindly offered
assitance with my original enquiry , much appreciated!!
