What makes you laugh?
Fiona Anderson: My two young children, disability humour and you've been framed type situations.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Fiona Anderson: I've always wanted to skydive for Muscular Dystrophy UK and RP Fighting Blindness charities but as I'd need to go through a specialist organisation for extreme sports for people with disabilities, I've not had the opportunity to dedicate the time and energy to formally get the ball rolling, though I have made enquiries!
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Fiona Anderson: My biggest influencer is famous artist, mouth and foot painter and disabled parent Alison Lapper. She was my driving force as a first-time parent trying to get to grips with parenting with a severe disability. She is still a massive positive influencer to me when things in parenting get rough. In the respect of, if she could do it with her limitations then so could I!
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Fiona Anderson: I would make Changing Places facilities mandatory in all public buildings so no disabled child would ever have to be changed on a filthy toilet floor again nor disabled adults like me, have to opt for surgically fitted catheters which wouldn't be needed if these facilities were common practice. Equally, I'd fight tooth and nail for more accessible housing in wider areas to combat the #HiddenHousingCrisis in the UK amongst other things!
