Niamh Jarvis-Smith was a carer for Disabled children. She sadly died last year. Drew Taylor, her partner, has started a petition to champion Niamh’s passion for disability rights. On many occasions during days out, staff members discriminated against the needs and rights of the children she was looking after. These include but are not limited to experiences at cinemas, swimming pools, soft-play, restaurants, and theme-parks. The petition urges the government to introduce mandatory disability awareness training for all public facing staff in the UK, across all industries.
