We are an organisation of disabled people: run and controlled by disabled people.

  • We campaign to promote the rights of disabled people and our inclusion in society
  • We provide information of use and interest to disabled people
  • We run events, members' meetings, and training courses
  • We encourage and support the self-organisation of disabled people
  • We take part in consultations with voluntary and statutory organisations to ensure that equality and accessibility is embedded into the development of  policies and services

Whilst carrying out all of these activities we actively promote the understanding and implementation of the Social Model of Disability, which underpins all our work.
