Grace Quantock urges other disabled women to take up public board roles and have a voice in issues that impact them most
When I was no longer stuck in the house after many years, due to the effects of multiple autoimmune conditions, I celebrated by burning my pyjamas and volunteering for the largest health board in Wales.
I had worked online as a writer and therapist during my long illness, but when I was well enough to leave home, I wanted to contribute to my local community. I rang the local health board in south-east Wales and volunteered my services. They asked me to contribute to their newsletter.
