Sophie P

Sophie lives in Camden with five of her friends. She plays a big part in the Camden learning disability community, and everyone knows her.

New people who meet Sophie (including doctors and nurses, who should know better) are always so surprised to learn that she lives an active life – with holidays, parties, dance and music classes, concerts, plays and much more.

Sophie likes:
David Bowie, Tom Daley, audiobooks, balloons, sunshine, rugby players, fashion, lights

What myth does Sophie bust?

The idea that people with profound and multiple disabilities stay in bed all day and can’t have fun.

That’s certainly not true!
