An Ordinary Life

ConOLThe booklet an Ordinary Life is based on the initial findings of a project called 'An Ordinary Life'. It is called this because many children and young people with complex health needs and/or who are dependent on medical technology find it very difficult to do ordinary things like going to the local leisure centre or cinema, or visiting friends and family.

Families of people who have complex health needs who are trying new ways of working or have ideas to make life better were interviewed and their experiences have been written up in this booklet.
