We are a disabled people’s user led organisation working together to promote a vision of a society where everybody with lived experience of disability, mental health support needs or health conditions can participate equally as full citizens

With the support of our members, partners, volunteers and funders we have been continued to work to deliver change with and for disabled people in Lewisham.
