Boccia Nationals 2014

Published April 10th

This years Boccia National Championships were PACE’s most successful yet. I came in third place in the BC1 category which is a personal best for me and because of that achievement I haven’t yet been disowned by my family, so I guess you can’t win them all!   The Nationals for me were proof that I’ve improved as a player since last year, demonstrated by my match against a new player called Zoe.   I won’t bore you with the details of the whole match because honestly I don’t remember most of it. I had a chance to score three […]

My Perfect Carer

Published December 6th

A carer meets a disabled person’s care needs. A personal assistant (PA) provides the support that allows a disabled person to be independent. So, maybe, we could say that our parents are our carers, because they help us with our personal needs- washing, dressing, and things like that. While a Learning Support Assistant could, these days, be thought of as a PA, because they provide support that allows disabled children to learn and participate in a classroom, as independently as possible. Some disabled people have carers who are not family members. Sometimes PAs also help with personal care needs. So, […]

Published August 7th

Hi guys! This month I’m going to share my experiences of making friends with you, while trying to answer this question.

That is, where I look for my friends. I have realised through my own experiences of trying to make friends that of course it is harder for disabled people to meet new people. Of course, there are barriers to our social lives – […]

My Journey to the British Boccia Championships

Published June 30th

Hi, my name is Alex and I’m pleased to be one of the PACE bloggers. I’m 20 years old and study Media Studies at Kingston University. I have never been massively into sport. My favourite sport is football and I support Manchester Utd. I get a lot of stick for this, due to the fact I was born, raised and still live in West London, but that’s a subject for another day. Other then football I wasn’t really interested in sport, partly because I’m in a wheelchair and partly because seeing my fellow students in secondary school sweating and running around like they were stranded in a […]

Having A Disability Isn’t Going To Stop Me Achieving My Dreams

Published May 24th

I’m Sarah Ismail. I’m 27. I’ve lived in London for most of my life – I love the city and am proud to call it home. I have Cerebral Palsy, which for me just means some difficulty walking. But I have good speech and as my friends will tell you, hardly shut up! I used to be a member of PACE and have always thought they do very good work. I will always support them in any way I can, which is why I’m very pleased to be one of their bloggers. I’ve always liked reading and writing and have […]
