In episode 10…

…Andrew chats to David Adams, CEO of ADS Independent Living Solutions. Together with his wife, he created the Smile Homes concept: a person-centric home that’s truly bespoke to the individual needs of people with learning challenges, autism, mental health challenges or physical differences – those who are often constrained to living in unsuitable settings or in the care of their families. He talks about his vision for inclusivity, technology, modularisation, and the individual and societal benefits of people with additional need being able to live independently.
