As a charity for local physically disabled people we understand the Coronavirus pandemic is very worrying time for people with existing disabilities. As we come out of the present lockdown we want to reassure you that we are doing all that we can both to keep services running and to put together the latest and best information for you.
We provide free, independent and impartial information and support on the issues that matter to disabled people and their families.
If you are worried about your benefits our case workers are still working on your behalf and are the best place to ask for specific advice. They are up to date with the latest advice from the Department of Works and Pensions and will guide you accordingly. We are carrying out some home visits , and have put measures in place to protect both staff and service users, so please either ring us on 01733 265551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to provide a tailored service. We will be carrying out a staged return to the John Mansfield Campus and seeing some clients from our offices, always with health and safety measures put in place to keep you as safe as possible.
