|Misión||Disability North promotes inclusion, independence and choice for disabled people in the region.|
Regardless of a disability being from a lifelong impairment, an accident, physical or mental illness or advancing age, people are often excluded socially and financially due to being poorly informed about disability benefits, welfare rights, community services and the availability and suitability of assistive equipment.
It is our mission to advise and guide disabled people through all these issues, by providing a holistic and person-centered approach throughout our services.
For this purpose, we provide a wide range of services, ranging from advice and support around Benefits and Welfare Rights, all aspects of independent living, such as personal care and leisure.
Direct Payment Support provides information, advice and training for people who are receiving or considering using Direct Payments. We assist disabled people in recruiting Personal Assistants (see current advertisements) and provide employer training.
Our therapists carry out free assessments and give independent guidance on the most suitable equipment. We have a comprehensive range of equipment and demonstration areas, including an accessible bathroom and living area, stairlifts and a mobility track.
