Who is the webinar for?
Meet the presenters:
Jennie Williams has degenerative hearing loss and wears a hearing aid. She also has an autoimmune condition and is neurodivergent. She has always worked for large charities in the care sector, then founded Enhance the UK 15 years ago as she recognised the huge gap in care settings acknowledging and facilitating their client’s sexual needs, identity and expression.
Zoe Lloyd is a full time wheelchair user due to rapid onset of rheumatoid arthritis aged 19. Going from an active sportsperson to having every joint with very limited movement had a huge impact on her confidence and identity. She had lots of therapy to adjust and subsequently qualified as a counsellor. She brings these skills to the charity in supporting people that write in to us.
