Friends for my daughter like her

Hi - i have a 20 year old daughter with cerebral palsy. She does have friends, but still becomes disheartened because her disabilities are more physical than mental/learning and she is still keen for a close friend with whom she feels she has a lot in common. We are not disrespecting people with mainly learning/mental disabilities, but I do understand her point of view. She wants a friend who can totally relate to her and vice versa, though she does have friends with mainly learning disabilities. We live in Norfolk. Also, does anyone else have trouble getting chiropody on the NHS? We have a very good specialist doctor who has referred my daughter but we have also been told by others that only diabetes sufferers are entitled to chiropody on the NHS?
