    Looks very interesting Diane, certainly helping people communicate well with professional bodies I'm sure will be useful for many. Its a skill a lot of people lack not just disabled people.

    Please can I ask what gave you the idea to set it up?

    Is it something you have been doing a for a while?

    All the very best with your endeavors

    Hey there Diane,

    Looks good so far, I would love to see people come together and be able to share their story. I think that one of the best things about massive social projects like Facebook is the fact that it can make us feel slightly less alienated from others, especially thanks to options like yours.
