Who we are and what we do

Knowledge is power and we believe that knowing how to access the information you need, when you need it, helps disabled people to break down the barriers that exclude them. We promote the rights of disabled people, their families, carers and those who work with them to have access to reliable, impartial, accurate and helpful information.
