Disability Horizons News Roundup: 15 -19 July 2019

This week a milestone moment happened in my role as writer for Disability Horizons.

I’ve been given access to the website admin page to self publish latest news and press releases for the online magazine.

Our long-term aim is to become a regular news platform for the disability community as well as giving disabled people a voice.

This is a great honour and privilege for me with a lot more responsibility.

Every week, I will share a roundup of the news headlines I’ve published on the online magazine over the past week.

I would appreciate it if you could read, comment and share these articles and continue to support the work of Disability Horizons.
