Online community for disabled people across the world – Disabilinet.com
Formed in 2012, the Disabilinet online team encompasses a select group of individuals who have been brought together to deliver a new concept in social media especially for disabled people.
This unique and knowledgeable online team has vast experience in both disability and the Internet and is led by successful global entrepreneur Mike Simmonds.
Mike has pioneered internationally for over 20 years in the commercial field of mobility products with a keen personal interest in ensuring less able people gain more from life.
With the support of a committed specialist team, he is fully focused on providing a fresh and dynamic social media community website which will make a real difference to all lives touched by disability.
As founder of Disabilinet, Mike is dedicated to the website becoming the platform to establish a charitable foundation which donates specialist assistance and mobility equipment to a variety of disabled people across the world.
“Disabilinet.com is more than just a social network, we are creating with you a place where the worlds of disabled individuals come together!”
Education, Research & Development in Social Work & IT
After working as an alternative practitioner and psychotherapist in private practice for nearly ten years I stepped over to higher education in 2005. At Saxion University of Applied Sciences I lecture and do research and development in the area of Social Work, Psychology and IT. Currently I'm focussing on merging mobile technology and social work.
