Rail App for your mobile phone

This looks good to me people, to get out and about on the train in 2018. If you have care and support from Ranger Home Care you could do this!

Welcome to my blog!

I am consultant promoting independence for life-progression for all types of impairment. With a lifetime’s experience of disability, I have had a range of roles and over ten years of consulting across the disability sectors, I am committed to achieving improved outcomes and encouraging positive social attitudes. My ethos is to seek ‘Potential Beyond Impairment’ http://rosshsmith.com both personally and through my colleagues and wider professional network.

I have Cerebral palsy (CP) and I am a full-time wheelchair user, I live‑in Hampshire with a 24 hour live‑in carer from Ranger Home Care and this enables me to live and work independently with support.

My blog will help you discover what we can achieve, not what we can’t !
