If you are one of the 13.9 million living with a disability in the UK, you are probably well aware of the many barriers you can face because of your disability ? both physical and within society. Living the life you want to live, therefore, can be an extremely challenging and often overwhelming task, especially if you do not have adequate support around you.

Thankfully, whether you are looking for advice on anything from working with a disability or education and learning, need support with personal care or being a carer for others or simply want to meet new friends by getting involved in leisure activities or community groups, there are a broad range of specialist services that can help you achieve your goals.

With a varied spectrum of organisations ranging from local councils to the NHS, specialised charities and other independent associations on hand, finding the perfect service for your requirements is becoming easier than ever before.
