Managing DirectorSally is the driving force behind the Ensuring an Ordinary Life for national network. Sally believes that too much of what underpins support is based on what you must not do and that we need to find ways of re-connecting hearts and minds to focus on what we ‘must do’.

She has worked to support people to be part of NICE’s guideline committees, co-run The Be Free Festival, and designed and co-delivered training programmes.

Jo has been a Gig Buddy for the organisation Stay Up Late for over 5 years because she is rather passionate about the power of real inclusion!
