Improving life for disabled people

To enable people with any disability to control their own lives and enjoy to the full the opportunities which society, the economy and the environment offer.

  • Helpline

    Our disability information advice line (helpline) is manned by disabled volunteers and operates from Monday to Friday each week. Our helpline volunteers use online databases, together with an information library, to help them to provide advice/assistance.

    If appropriate, our volunteers signpost callers to another, more appropriate, source of assistance/information.

  • Disability Information Database

    Our new online database of disability information can help you with answers to many of your questions - ranging from where to get a disabled parking (blue) badge, to checking the support available for a relative with Parkinson's Disease.

    If you cannot find the answer you are looking for, then please contact our helpline advisors.

  • Member Clubs

    Our many member clubs form a disability support network across the County as well as providing social and recreational facilities.

  • Training

    We run an Access Auditor training course to provide disabled people with new skills and qualifications to assist them into permanent employment.

    Successful students, and other trained auditors, are available to undertake access audits, disability awareness and other training.

Please give

We rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations who have kindly funded us through donations and grants in the past. We have a link to Virgin money giving, an online donation service, should you wish to make what would be a much appreciated donation.
