An Ordinary Life booklet

The booklet is based on the initial findings of a project called 'An Ordinary Life'. We called it this because many children and young people with complex health needs and/or who are dependent on medical technology find it very difficult to do ordinary things like going to the lcoal leisure centre or cinema, or visiting friends and family.
We interviewed the families of people who have complex health needs who are trying new ways of working or have ideas to make life better; their experiences have been written up in this booklet.
