Gig Buddies Project Coordinator
Deidre Brock, Westminster MP for North Edinburgh and Leith, heard
about Equal Futures and wanted to find out more about what we do.
One of our Mums, Monica Shaw, and I met with Deidre at the Equal
Futures office. Stories were shared of the difference the Circle has
made for Monica and her daughter Lauren. Monica reflected on how the
Circle is nothing like she imagined, but is in fact so much more than she
ever thought it could be.

This is a very poinant film about negative attitudes of bus drivers
to people who use wheelchairs.
Perhaps the hardest hitting part is how the public gang up
against Karen- no one tries to help her.
Karen was deeply affected by this incident. She is thrilled that her
story is being shared.
