What we do

We promote equality and inclusion for disabled people, people with lived experience of mental health problems, long term conditions and people with a learning disability and Autism.

We deliver high-quality, culturally appropriate, accessible services responding to local need and the views of our service users. A key part of our work is challenging the stigma and discrimination that people experience in their everyday lives. We also provide information and signposting.
