During their chat, Saihan told Princess Anne about the struggles that young disabled people have encountered as the coronavirus pandemic rages on across the world. At one point he discussed the difficulties that social isolation brings.

According to sense, one in two young adults report feeling lonely every day; this number raises to three in four among young disabled people. After his inspiring talk with Princess Anne, Saihan spoke out to thank her for her support saying, “This is a very challenging time. Sense has a huge, positive impact on me and other disabled people.”

“I really appreciate this opportunity to share my experiences with HRH The Princess Royal. It will show how much her support means to people like me. It will help others to stand up for their rights and make themselves heard.”

Sense Is A Group Which Supports Young People With Disabilities

Saihan also spoke about the significance of Sense’s community services, one of which matches young disabled people with volunteers who take the time to meet up in their local area and participate in fun activities.

“I hope all the work we have done together, and to be done in the future, will help change society’s views and bring about change,” he said. “Disability should be taken more seriously.”

Princess Royal has been a patron of Sense for 30 years. Earlier this year she wrote a letter to the group thanking frontline staff for their work with children and adults with complex disabilities. The demand for the group’s services increased in tandem with the pandemic and has moved to an online model.
