He soon discovered there are many difficulties, obstacles and roadblocks in the world for people with disabilities.

John contacted organisations such as Ticketek, Qantas, Norwood Football Club, TFE Hotels and others, in an attempt to resolve accessibility issues. Some businesses were sympathetic, and others were not. He turned to the Human Rights Commission for assistance.
