It is crucial to create an environment – whether that be university, school or the workplace – which prevents MSK conditions from developing and allows people who are living with MSK conditions to meet their full potential.
“Not only does it allow people to thrive and succeed, but it limits the impact that MSK conditions have on our ability to live life exactly how we want to. Ultimately, MSK conditions should not dictate what we want to learn, study or practise and that is why this toolkit is vital for employers and educators to consider.” – Jasmine Davey, young person living with an MSK condition
Success! – a feeling, an experience and accomplishment we all long for in some sense, and often what we search for within education or careers.
Finding the right environments for success for young people with an MSK condition can be a challenge, but taking the time to address personal needs, adapting to the surroundings and welcoming conversation only opens doors for them to THRIVE regardless of the difficulties they may be facing.
The drive and commitment from young people with these conditions must be accompanied by the dedication from employers and higher education providers to participate in honest conversation about the needs of their employees, understanding how drastically daily life with MSK conditions can change and provide equal opportunity to succeed.
The guarantee of this will only encourage young people to find their passions, be fruitful in their roles within companies and flourish as individuals. – Georgia Bishop, young person living with an MSK condition
