Feros Care launched a new podcast series aimed at shining a light on the way society deals with disability in a bid to amplify marginalised voices and create more inclusive communities.
Grow Bold With Disability explores the funny and surprising side of living with disability through the stories of people who do. The 12-part series talks to people who are either living with disability, caring for someone with a disability or working in the disability space and covers topics from art, love and relationships; to parenting, technology and housing.
The podcast is hosted by journalist and broadcaster Pete Timbs. His co-host is Tristram Peters of disability services comparison website, Clickability who lives with spinal muscular atrophy. The podcast has unearthed some of the most interesting interviews Pete has had in his 20 years of journalism.
“The stories make you realise what is truly important in life – family, love, mateship, understanding, a helping hand, empathy, patience and being bold,” he said.
Jennene Buckley, Feros Care CEO, said the organisation worked tirelessly to smash stereotypes around ageing and disability through its work in aged-care and as a partner in the community under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
