Disability Rights Uk

Disability Rights UK works to create a society where everyone with lived experience of disability or health conditions can participate equally as full citizens.

We are disabled people leading change to:

  • Mobilise disabled people’s leadership and control – in our own lives, our organisations and society
  • Achieve independent living in practice
  • Break the link between disability and poverty
  • Put disability equality and human rights into practice across society

Disability Rights UK was formed through a unification of Disability Alliance, Radar and National Centre for Independent Living on 1 January 2012.

We have a number of helplines providing information on a variety of disability related issues:

  • Disabled Students Helpline
  • Independent Living line
  • Member organisations welfare rights service
  • Tribunal Support Unit

More information on these lines can be found  here
