Sex inclusivity in social care settings

An interview with Jennie Williams from Enhance the UK

“I remember thinking that why is that if you are a disabled person and living in a care environment automatically you only get offered a single bed? That always felt very infantilising to me. The way care home rooms are designed, many of them don’t even have enough room for a double bed. I just remember thinking that I’m in my 20s and sleeping in a double bed. So why isn’t this happening for other people? That’s probably one of my first memories of wanting to do something about this.”

In this feature, Social Care Today reporter Tamara speaks with Jennie Williams, CEO of Enhance the UK – a charity which is working to destigmatise sex in disability spaces.
