Hello! Welcome to DENW

We're furthering the rights of Disabled people across the North West

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.

 

Social Model

Disability Equality NW is for all disabled people and exists to provide services which help disabled people live independently.

Our understanding of the Social Model is described here:
