Sophia's story

Livability supporter Sophia Parsons first got involved with the charity through Victoria Education Centre, Livability’s school in Dorset.

[pullquote cite=”Sophia Parsons, Livability supporter” type=”right”]I think the work that Livability does is very valuable. Livability focuses on how people can live, whatever their circumstances or abilities, and reach their potential.[/pullquote]
‘Victoria is such an inspiring place, so full of life and energy and there’s so much love and commitment and professionalism. There’s such a sense of helping everyone to achieve their potential, and appreciating and valuing every single individual.’

Sophia has a personal connection with disability. Her sister became profoundly disabled after reacting to a routine injection as a child. She understands how disability affects families. It’s very important to me to be involved with disabled people because there is so much need – need for support, need for funds and resources. It’s an ongoing struggle and I know that from the inside.
