The platform

The platform came from a simple idea conceived by Col Chandler, set out in his partnership with
Dr. Gary Allen and enhanced in collaborations with fellow travellers. Both men had been involved in successful businesses despite their disabilities and they had noted a serious flaw in the dominant
approach to disability and work, especially for
acquired or progressive conditions.
