“I have received more information and support than I could possible have imagined. If all of your people are of the same standard as Jenny, you are doing extremely well.”

“I just witnessed Courtney Wolf speaking at the Disability Royal Commission today and wanted to write and say congratulations and thank you for speaking so clearly and precisely and accurately about the issues faced by people with a disability. You spoke so well – so many things directly relevant to our current situation. Thank you for speaking up for people like us. The DRC has proven to be a great forum to get a lot of really important information into the market – not that many are listening – but it has been great to hear that we are not alone.”

“I just wanted to email you to say how much we appreciated Caitlin’s help in resolving the matter of a wheelchair for Jordan. Her consistent and unending support, knowledge, patience, and determination were extraordinary. Many times Jordan and I felt like giving up, and Caitlin was there to encourage us to keep going. Her calm but resolute attitude was just what we needed after a long 18 months and getting absolutely no where. We would be more than happy for you to publish our feedback. With our sincere thanks.”
