Emma Gee is part of our new lived experience team.
“With a background as an occupational therapist and then surviving a stroke at the age of 24, I hope that I can share my experiences as a provider and recipient to further humanise the incredible work that the Summer Foundation already delivers,” Emma said.
“In my role, I hope to develop and deliver resources, services, policies and processes that are informed and shaped by people with lived experience.”
As a Lived Experience Advisor, Emma will also be looking at ways for the Summer Foundation to engage more people with disability in our work.
Emma draws on her own experiences to write a blog that she hopes will help people feel more valued, empowered and informed. You can find out more on our Staying Connected page.
