Do you have a disability, impairment or long term condition?
Are you caring for someone with a disability, impairment or long term condition?
Does a colleague have a disability, impairment or long term condition and you want advice on how to support them?
Our membership is varied; some of us have a disability, impairment or long term condition, others provide support to ensure that everyone gets the help they need - but everyone is welcome.
We give advice to anyone who needs it and provide a place for people to discuss their experiences of living and working with a disability, impairment or long term condition or caring for someone who has a disability impairment or long term condition.
There are many disabilities, impairments or long term conditions some are obvious and others are not so visible. They can affect us mentally, physically or both. What is important is how we and others understand and appreciate each other.
