'I've lost all of the independence I worked so hard for'

The end of lockdown is nigh for many of us! Legal restrictions on mask wearing and social distancing in England are going, the other nations are taking it more slowly.

Disability charities like Sense and Scope, are warning disabled people could be "left behind".

On this week's podcast we hear from two disabled people about their apprehension and anticipation for the end of lockdown. From going out in their community and using public transport again, to getting back to school and college and finding the confidence to shop alone. What will 'Freedom Day' mean for disabled people?

Presented by Keiligh Baker.

Produced by Drew Miller-Hyndman.
