We are currently looking for content providers and writers for our website to join our team of volunteers. If you feel that you can provide regular interesting content we’d love to hear from you whether you are disabled, a carer, or simply want to blog for us. It doesn’t have to be anything huge, just a few paragraphs can keep folks coming back if they are well written and interesting, so send us a message and let us know!
As you are aware, we are not JUST all about disabled parking bay abuse, although it is the primary reason we are here, we also aim to be an encouraging and inspiring resource for people from all backgrounds, and with all types of abilities.
We often get emails from group members or from people who’ve stumbled across us via the ether of the internet, expressing thanks and briefly telling us their story. Of course, we have also outright asked for these stories about your passions and how you feel you could inspire others too!
