THE AYL STORY

About Access Your Life:

Too many people living with mental and physical disabilities have been forced to continually advocate for themselves. If you need anything, whether it is a piece of equipment, an appointment with a consultant, or a medical investigation you must FIGHT for it. A process which can be extremely isolating, daunting, and difficult due to the number of unreliable sources and endless sales pitches.

Not only does Access Your Life strive to make some of these processes easier and more enjoyable for all. But we aim to share inclusive advice, reviews, and experiences to help others achieve a brighter future. Why? Because both Felix and I have a mutual understanding of the challenges associated with managing a disability in an inaccessible world. So, we set ourselves the challenge of alleviating some of the struggles people with disabilities face!

Fast forward to 2021 and our collection of online services are helping patients, carers, and healthcare professionals around the world. Best of all, we have been able to provide employment opportunities for several people living with disabilities that previously prevented them from finding work. We also have an amazing team of volunteers who create relatable and realistic content for our audience to enjoy.
