Lord Jack Ashley (1922-2012) was MP for Stoke on Trent South for 26 years and a pioneer of disability rights and equality. He established and then chaired the influential All Party Parliamentary Group on Disability for over 40 years and was instrumental in securing the UK’s first civil rights laws for disabled people.
Professor Stephen Hawking is arguably the world’s most famous scientist and author of best-seller ‘A Brief History of Time’. Prof Hawking has had motor neurone disease for most of his adult life.
