Toni with Harry. Words and pictures by James Hopkirk

I first met Toni last year. She got in touch after reading some of my posts on Brixton Advice Centre’s blog, because of the appalling treatment she’d suffered at the hands of the Department for Work and Pensions. She wanted other people to know what she’d been put through – and I wrote about it here.

Toni lives with a number of disabilities that make everyday tasks, the sort of things I take for granted, daunting, exhausting and often impossible. We’ve stayed in touch since that first coffee and we resolved to produce something more personal, that might better convey the struggles she faces every day.

This is Toni’s story, presented as a standalone Tumblr blog, which you can view here: Just nipping to the shops: A photo story
