Part 3: Wellington - Long term relationships and having children
The Wellington panel discuss discuss long-term relationships, if those have mostly been with disabled or non-disabled partners, and decisions around having children. Even when faced with the positive relationships they experienced between their parents, in the abscence of disabled adults, none of the panelists thought partner relationships would or could be something they would have when they were adults. What changed for each of them, was meeting other people like them, in relationships. For two of the four people this meant going to a different country. The Wellington Panel are: Mani Bruce Mitchell, Victoria Manning, Ivan Yeo, and David Corner.
