In agencies that provide direct support to disabled people seeking to live their lives to the full, Hanns Meissner writes, ‘each conversation holds the potential to move us closer to supporting people as citizens as opposed to caring for the clients of a system’.

‘The ‘blue space’ of the book’s title comes from the metaphor of the storm where there is calmness at the centre even as the elements rage all around. In our work we need to create the ‘blue space’ in which we can find the peace to honestly assess current reality and generate the changes in self, relationships and organisation which better meet our highest ideals.’
