GET INVOLVED: April 27, 8:40pm - Radio 4's In Touch, the weekly programme for visually impaired people, will be broadcasting an election special where they'll be asking your questions to representatives of the three main parties. If you have something you're keen to have answered, then email intouch@bbc.co.uk before close of PLAY on Sunday THE 25TH OF April.

BE ON A SHOW: If you're a short statured person aged 18 or over, living in Northern Ireland, listen up. Mind The Gap Films are making a programme where a person with restricted growth gets to spend a couple of days with comedian Adam Hills, having a laugh and showing him what their life is like. Find out more by contacting Anne Heffernan at anne@mindthegapfilms.com before the 3rd of May.

The Ouch! team has made it back from Birmingham's Naidex unscathed and we'd like to thank everyone who joined us at our stand and in the seminars. It was particularly lovely to meet some of the regular posters to the Ouch! messageboard.
