INNERVIEWS | The Breath Edition

With multiple disabilities including Loeys-Dietz Syndrome, Marfans, and POTS, Celia Hensman lives with a permanent central line in her chest through which she receives daily blood infusions and complete artificial nutrition. She has never known life without being disabled. In 2021, on The International Day of People with Disabilities, Celia launched The Disability Policy Centre. Disabled-led and dedicated to the advancement and development of policy, they work to ensure that accessibility is at the heart of conversation, consultation, and legislation. Regarding disabilities, policies of truth can only be enacted with inclusion and accessibility.
