What We Do
Our aim is to improve the quality of life and enhance the opportunities and accessibility of those opportunities for all those affected by disadvantage through disability be it physical access, barriers to communication, hardship and well-being (financial), limited opportunities (working and learning), access to social cultural and environmental pursuits.
We enable disabled people to be active participants in society and not passive recipients of care by providing a range of events and activities across health and wellbeing, leisure and learning, vocation and enterprise, training and volunteering, heritage and culture, arts and sports.
