The personal stories of deafblind people, their families carers – and how Sense helped them
Our journey is the powerful and compelling account of the experiences of families involved with Sense and Sense Scotland over five decades. The book was launched at an event in Sadler's Wells theatre, London in June 2012.
The Our journey project was overseen by three parents - Ann and John Chapman and Gini Bartlett. Fifty-seven family stories have been collected together and published in this unique volume.
