An online disability lifestyle magazine
Martyn Sibley and Srin Madipalli
In November 2010, two disabled guys from London, on a road-trip in California, dreamt up a huge project they wanted to bring to the world. Imagine two lifelong friends, two electric wheelchairs, two Personal Care Assistants, a hoist and an accessible car stirring up a big cocktail of imagination and innovation, during a dream adventure.
After months of working hard to turn the vision into a reality, Martyn and Srin launched www.disabilityhorizons.com.
Disability Horizons pioneers an innovative 21st century approach to disability by empowering an aspirational community to provide and share content that informs, inspires and entertains.
Both of us have poured our ideas, imagination, energy, commitment and love into www.disabilityhorizons.com over the past 15 months. The feedback, growth and utility shows we have created a much loved publication.
The Disability Horizons community is already 20,000 strong mostly through its social media channels, their readers write the articles, share their wealth of disability knowledge and progress towards their individual dreams together. Articles include personal stories on employment, sport, travel and relationships. The guys share many of their own daring escapades and have regular article contributions from high profile organisations, service providers, politicians, celebrities, entrepreneurs and various opinion formers that have the power to shape and change lives.
There is a page for readers to pose their own questions, an area to post unwanted disability items (the classifieds section), a resources profile page for disability companies to share useful products/services, and the Disability Horizons ‘Travel Zone’.
Now we need your to help share this love!
We know there are many more disabled people, family members, friends and professionals who can benefit from Disability Horizons.
We’re asking you to help us reach them - email, tweet, put us on facebook - talk about us, the magazine, the articles we publish.
Connect all of us, through our magazine, to a wider world on the web.
With a larger community of people; we can share, learn and progress life for disabled people much faster.
Many thanks for your support and we welcome all of your ideas for Disability Horizons,
Martyn and Srin
