We provide disability counselling, support and groups for people with physical disabilities*, their partners and health professionals.
Counselling and sex&relationship support is offered UK-wide by telephone or online. Support groups and in-person counselling are currently in the following areas: Lichfield, Staffordshire, Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Erdington, West Midlands. For other areas please check our directory and call us.
We aim to empower people, enhancing their lives, relationships, mental and sexual wellbeing. We believe that disability experience is essential in providing disability services and are proactive in employing people with disabilities.
*Disability language can be a hot topic! 'Disabled people', 'people with disabilities' or 'people with an impairment’: we understand that different people like different words. Many prefer 'disabled people' to reflect barriers in society or a strong disabled identity. We use ‘people with disabilities’ so you can find us online and because we see the person first, but acknowledge the impairment and the disability.
We are also a founding member of Kandu (www.kandugroup.com), a network of ethical disability organisations. Click on the Kandu Logo to find out more
