THEY are all heroes – but they need our help.
The Paralympics have come home and they look like being the most successful and well-attended Games ever. Our paralympians are quite deservedly getting a world stage for their achievements. But let's not forget the millions more people with disabilities and those who care for them. They confront hurdles of a very different kind in their daily lives – hurdles of financial hardship, social isolation, ill health, depression and despair. In overcoming these obstacles they are performing their own quiet heroics, day in, day out, with little recognition and even less support.
Even on the occasion of the biggest ever Paralympics, disabled people and carers remain among the most disenfranchised and vulnerable members of society. I work for Vitalise, a charity that provides desperately-needed respite breaks for disabled people and carers at our accessible centres around the UK. Our breaks are a lifeline, enabling our guests to restore their ability to cope and rediscover their will to carry on. Without opportunities like these, life for them would be very bleak indeed.
Join us in calling for greater recognition and support for people with disabilities and carers. We don't get a penny from government, but rely on the compassion and generosity of our supporters to keep on providing our vital services, so please help us.
