Hi! I'm Gem - this page is the spin off to my award winning blog After building the blog since 2016 and working in the disability and education sector, I decided to freelance and share my experience and knowledge with the world. This page gives you information about how I can work with you whether that's on training, speaking at your event or making your organisation to be even more inclusive. If you have any questions - don't hesitate to email me on

Gem Speaking to a crowd of people

Whether you're looking to up your game with knowledge around disability, or would like to check if your current project is disability inclusive - you're in the right place!
