HomeCareDirect has noticed a very interesting project in North Yorkshire and nationwide called The Changing Lives, Changing Times project.

This project encourages schools to create plays based on the real life experiences of people with a disability who were born in the 1940s, 1950’s, 1960s, 1970’s and 1980’s, which is aimed at raising awareness.

There’s also an interesting article in the Guardian newspaper today that is worth a read.
