SIM Ep 384 Chops 165: The imperfect art of caring with Penny Wincer

Penny Wincer is a two-time carer, single mum and author of the eye-opening Tender: The Imperfect Art of Caring. In this Chops, she chats to Mickey about the loaded nature of the term ‘carer’, how disabled people have been thrown under the bus, the absolute pittance unpaid carers receive in the UK, the unique intersection of disability, the medical versus social model of dealing with disability, and the importance of individual stories in helping us understand what need to be done to make lives better for disabled people and those looking after and supporting them.
