CEO wins award
Our CEO, Amo Raju has been recognised for his outstanding work with the charity.
Finance Monthly, an international business magazine holds annual CEO awards to recognise the achievements of CEOs worldwide. Amo was nominated along with hundreds of other CEOs but his ability to predict trends and quickly adapt to the needs of service users, gave him the edge on many other nominees.

Celebrating 25 Years
This year on the 1st August, DD will be a quarter of a century old.
25 Years ago, a group of like-minded people got together in a living room and came up with the concept of a user-led organisation to support disabled people in independent living called Disability Direct. Given that many said it wouldn’t last more than 6 months, here we are having taken over 100,000 enquiries and having delivered pioneering projects benefitting the city and country as a whole.
To celebrate, we are inviting our supporters to join us in a fun filled evening of music and comedy on the 21st September at The Spot on Wilmot St. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01332 299449 to book your tickets.
