A regular TV and radio commentator, Jennie Williams is the CEO and founder of Enhance The UK
A charity that is well known for its innovative approach to disability awareness training, and it’s campaigns to break the taboo around about sex and disability.
Jennie, who has degenerative hearing loss and lives in Brighton with her fiancé and two daughters, began her career in the care sector and founded the charity ten years ago. In 2019 her work was recognised in the Shaw Trust Disability Power 100 List.
She believes ‘Everyone deserves to experience pleasure, intimacy and love. Open conversation, support and education is the way to drive things forward. The sexual rights and responsibilities of disabled people need to be on the agenda, be that inclusive sex education in schools, or ensuring smear tests are available to women with a disability or impairment.’
Jennie and her team created the Undressing Disability campaign to provide free information for individuals who want to learn more about sexual expression, dating, intimacy and all the intricacies of leading a fulfilling emotional and sexual adult life. This includes the ‘Love Lounge’ online forum, with advice ranging from what to say on your dating profile, to dealing with out of sync sex. The website attracts global visitors from both the disabled community and their partners, parents, occupational therapists, nursing staff and carers. You can send in your questions in confidence via the website.
Thanks Jennie Williams for joining us!
