Kat Bradley talks about her experiences as a disabled mum, including getting the right equipment, navigating support, and the barriers that exist. Above all though, she has a message to other disabled parents, and to disabled young people – you can dream big and do anything. This is her #SecretLifeOfUs.

Check out Kat’s blog on Twitter.


The #SecretLifeOfUs campaign aims to provide families with disabled children an opportunity to have their experiences heard.

It brings to life the realities of the challenges disabled children, young people and their families face in living a life that many other members of society will not have to even consider. It reveals the parts of their lives that most people simply do not see.

Please do get involved with the campaign. Share our blogs and videos. If you are a disabled young person or family member, send us your photos, videos, blogs, and more – you can email us at disabledchildrens.partnership@mencap.org.uk
