Welcome to Discover Disability, the blog that highlights the emotional roller coaster of becoming disabled through illness or injury, for both those living through this difficult adjustment & their families.

I have recently been fortunate enough to receive support for my endeavours to set up the charity 

...which has been over a year in creation and was born of six years of emotional adjustment following my life changing accident.

When a wonderful opportunity came about last week to be a part of The Sun's new exciting feature 'Duncan's People',  with world famous photographer Duncan Raban-

...we rose to the challenge to get the charity's website launched in time for the article going to press.

Although extremely proud of my team that got this website off of the ground, due to the article being published sooner than we had anticipated, we are sadly currently experiencing some difficulties with our Just Giving link from the site, as well as one or two other teething problems.

Despite these issues, we hope that you will find the Get a Life! website an interesting and exciting step towards challenging misconceptions and banishing comparison and promoting compassion for all.

We hope that Get a Life! will attract many out there to join us in improving support for people going through this difficult transition.

Please check out our charitable aims and introduction to our campaign, by clicking on the link at the top of this page.

In the meantime, if you are interested in a first hand account of the physical and emotional transition of becoming disabled, then please take click on our blog post links on the left hand side of this page.  


If you would like to donate to our cause, then please take a minute to fill in our contact form, and it will be our pleasure to get back to you whilst we wait for our online 'Donate' facility. 


Many thanks for your kindness and patience with this problem.
Karen Reader

Charity founder
