  1. Hi, I’m a quadriplegic as a result of a spinal injury and would like to take part in the ‘Tuesday Twitter Chat’. Is it possible to receive the 6 questions a day or two beforehand as I struggle to keep up during the 1 hour chat. I am trustee of a number of local disability charities and would like to run the questions by fellow trustees too for their input!

    Many thanks i

    1. Hi Mike we try to post them the evening before the chat on the questions page.
      We record the interviews on a Monday and base the questions on the chat so cannot post them any earlier than that.
      Hopefully this will give you enough time to prepare.
      Neil
