    Support Us

    We are a community group of disabled people providing a range of support services to enable other disabled people to live independently and be active in their local community. Disability Equality is a user led disabled people’s organisation, that is 21 years old.

    Based in Preston, the majority of the organisations trustees, volunteers and staff are disabled people themselves. Our overall aim is to further the human rights of disabled people and we deliver services, projects and events to help achieve this aim.

    As Disability Equality North West is a registered charity and a voluntary organisation all donations would be gratefully received.

    If you would like to support us in our valuable work providing services which enable local disabled people to play a full role in their communities, just donate – it’s simple and quick!
