Phil Levick

“It was such a good thing to do, and it was the right thing to do. I think a lot of good things have stemmed from it.”

Phil Levick was working for Kingston Council’s Disability Team when Jane Campbell and Ann Macfarlane proposed their independent living scheme. Phil was seconded to Kingston Association for Disabled People, as KCIL was called at the time, to help support the piloting of the scheme. Phil has recently returned to work for KCIL and remains passionate about the positive impact the scheme has had on the disabled community.
