Disability Information & Advice

Impartial advice and information on a range of disability related matters

Ideal for All aims to provide disabled people and carers with impartial information, advice and support that will enable them to make informed choices about disability matters that affect them.

In this section, you’ll find links to resources and websites that offer information on a range of disability issues. (Please note that we cannot be held responsible for the content of external websites.)

You may find it useful to join one of our Peer Support Groups – they offer a valuable source of information, shared experiences and mutual self-help.
