Meet heavyweight boxer Joe Joyce who was born almost 30 years ago to his mum Marvel Opara, then a teenager with a visual impairment. The mother and son combo from London have done many challenges together but have now gone solo - Joe won silver at the 2016 Rio Olympics and Marvel is about to climb Kilimanjaro.

His 2017 Edinburgh Fringe show, Deaf Comedy Fam, is about growing up with parents who can't hear and he plans to simultaneously sign and speak it which is even harder than you might imagine, apparently. From helping pay the bills through to pointing out the right bus, Joe and Ray trade stories on life with disabled parents.Also, Samantha Renke discusses accessible housing in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster and Naomi Lawson-Jacobs tells us about Autistic Pride Day.
