The October issue of Forward is out now

The front cover of this month’s issue features Sex Education actor, George Robinson. We caught up with him to find out what it’s like to star in one of the most popular programmes on Netflix, and to get his views on the representation of disability in the media. We also spoke to Sophie Elwes to find out how she uses podcasts as a channel to engage and reach people living with disabilities, and put the spotlight on the way in which disabled actors feature in TV and film.

In the health section you can read about the different types of inflammation and how you can manage and alleviate the symptoms. We also take a closer look at the issue of pressure ulcers and the economic and personal consequences of poor management and treatment options. Next month we will be talking more about pressure ulcers as Stop the Pressure Day takes place on 19 November – so keep an eye on our website and social media channels for more information.

You can also read about:

  • SIA’s response to the Government’s proposals for a points-based immigration system and the consequences this will have on our social care system
  • Euan’s Guide – the disabled access charity making it easier for disabled people to find great places to go
  • Why disabled people are premium candidates when job searching during a pandemic
  • How you can get back into fitness following a summer of lockdown
  • The enjoyment of fishing and how the activity can be accessible with the right equipment and know-how.
