Hidden Lives chronic illness support service

Hidden Lives is a support hub for people with hidden disabilities, chronic illnesses and chronic pain conditions. Many people have focused on helping people with more visible disabilities, but those whose disabilities are not as prominent, often don't get the support they require or need. The phrase "You don't look disabled to me" has been said to pretty much every single on of our group at some point in their lives. This kind of attitude and naivety is why many of our group used to or still stay more solitary in their lives and not want to leave the house.
