Bridget Snedden has been actively involved in the disability sector for 30 years in a range of roles in service delivery, NGO and Governance of a large Auckland disability provider.   She is the mother of three adult children, her oldest son Alex has Down syndrome.  In 1991 at the age of 3yrs Alex was expelled from kindergarten and it was this experience that Bridget came to the realisation that society viewed disabled people in ways she found abhorrent.  Over the years she has worked to change the view of many and has created a fully inclusive life for her son.
