Maggie meets Ken, who is an outpatient at Stoke Mandeville – along with others who are residents or outpatients, they start discussing the possibility of independent living outside institutions. Ken approaches other Housing Association schemes, but none are deemed suitable for the group’s specific needs.

Meanwhile, the Union of the Physically Impaired Against Segregation (UPIAS) was founded by Paul Hunt – Vic Finkelstein and Ken and Maggie Davis are key members.
