About us

What else we do

Our level of activity and range of services depends on the funding that we have at the time. Typically we offer:

  • Free support and representation on matters relating to a range of statutory services for disabled people, their families and carers, including community and residential care, education and housing adaptations.
  • Online resources directory of local and national organisations.
  • Together with the Cambridgeshire Alliance for Independent Living and Realife we assist with the development and delivery of services for people using Direct Payments from Cambridge County Council to pay for their personal care.
  • Assessment of access to buildings or services for public, private and voluntary sectors. All surveys are undertaken by and offer a cost-effective way to ensure that buildings and services comply with the Equalities Act (formerly the DDA).
  • Disability Equality Training - training courses for groups and businesses to explain the environmental, employment and discrimination issues faced by disabled people.
