Blog

Martyn SibleyMy blog aims to inspire, inform and change the world around disability issues, by sharing my individual experiences and personal journey. I talk about family, friends, love of music, struggles as a Tottenham Hotspurs fan, my world travels and crazy challenges. I also share hard learned advice on overcoming lifes barriers.

.

My personal achievements show the world what is possible, but please remember that every individual makes their own journey and achieves in their own ways.

My community projects, media work, world travels and businesses create conversations for people to learn, share, support and progress together. Please take a look below at my blog and subscribe here

Videos

Martyn SibleyWhen words are not enough, what can one do? I say grab the flipcam and film it!

.

My videos show things in a new, interesting and exciting way. They often cover more thrilling occurrences; such as my world travels, flying a plane, or interviewing someone else of interest to you. The same ethos applies – inspire, inform and change.

.

People have said how the videos get across my positive attitude to life, silly sense of humour and useful approaches to overcoming the everyday barriers of life.

Community Projects

I run my own digital community projects for you - disabled people, friends/family/professionals to disabled people, and anyone generally interested. They aim to bring people together; to share, learn and empower each other.

 

The best solutions come from disabled people themselves. However the more society and government understands the problems we face, and knows their own specific actions towards a solution; social change will occur faster.

Disability Awareness: how it benefits everyone

It’s already been a month since returning from the big roadtrip. I’ve been catching up, stabilising, and proactively improving my health/work/social bits and bobs. It was nice to be still and do life’s necessary tasks. I’m also holding back from a rant about the British weather. I must say I’m really missing proper sunshine and […]
