A few days ago I came across a quote from a young disabled woman that I simply couldn't believe." Emma, from Cambridge, said, "Not getting the support I need has meant my life is on hold. I have no routine, I feel socially isolated, lonely and of no value to society. I'm only 24; I feel 84."
Emma is talking about the effects a lack of proper social care support has on her life. The idea of someone so young feeling that she is of no value to society is a terrible state of affairs, but sadly, Emma is not alone.
