Woman with disabilities on Location Location Location

Fans of Location Location Location will have last night seen partners in crime Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer focusing the latest property search on London to find a home for wheelchair user Claire who has cerebral palsy.

Not only is it great that they featuring an independent woman with disabilities, but Claire is also their youngest buyer with the biggest budget. Only 18-years-old and having just finished her first year of university, Claire has a whopping £1,700,00 to invest in a property, just a small part of the payout she was awarded after complications at birth resulted in her disability. Her dream is for somewhere on the Southbank, and ultimately a home with easy access to her university campus, London’s hot spots, and most importantly somewhere that will enable her independence.

Claire's chosen Borough Penthouse

I was really impressed with how the show portrayed Claire’s story; they didn’t focus unnecessarily on her disability, instead looking at her personality and success, as well as the practicalities of buying somewhere when in a wheelchair. However it would be good to see another show in the future where Kirstie and Phil assist someone with a disability but a more realistic budget.

Oh and being a girl, I have to comment on Claire’s fabulous style. I wish I had as much sophistication when I was 18, and such good shoes!
