Libby Herbert – Colostomy UK
Libby Herbert works for Colostomy UK, a national charity that offers free support and advice to people with a stoma (known as Ostomates) their families, carers and friends. The charity also runs projects to empower ostomates to return to sports, hobbies and other interests and give them the confidence to take up fresh challenges, as well as advocating for ostomates’ rights and their voice on the bigger issues. Their campaigns raise awareness and encourage organisations to make their facilities more inclusive. Libby joined the Accessibility Forum at Manchester Airport to help shape, influence and give guidance in the area of hidden disabilities, to make travel accessible for all.
