Disability Equality North West is a Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO) that started in 1996. The organisation is run and controlled by disabled people.
The main aim is to further the human rights of disabled people across the North West and we provide a number of user-led services to support disabled people and achieve this aim.
The different services have arisen out of local community needs and they promote the Social Model of Disability.
For more details on our history, read our Disabled People’s Movement History Page.

Current services include:
- Advice, information and client liaison
- Hate Crime Reporting and Support
- Group Activities and Training
- Managed Accounts for Self Directed Support
- Peer support
