In this episode of the 90 Minutes with Neville Southall podcast, Neville explores the challenges and opportunities found in the lives of people living with disabilities – and hears impassioned and illuminating testimonies from his three guests.
He speaks to Steve Johnson, a former World Amputee Footballer of the Year, who is the disability manager for Everton FC. Steve recalls the day he lost a leg in an accident when playing football and explains how sport helped bring a fresh focus to his life as well as his work ensuring access to football for others through Everton In The Community.
The importance of providing sport for people with disabilities is underlined by another guest, Dawn Rozzell-Howens. Her father, Dave, created the disability programme for British Gymnastics and at Spartac Gym Club in Ormskirk they offer opportunities for gymnasts with disabilities – including Dawn’s son Sam, who has Down Syndrome.
Neville also hears from journalist and campaigner Ian Birrell who cites cases involving the abusive incarceration of people with autism as he highlights the lack of care and attention given in our society to people with disabilities.
