Disability Direct is a charity born from the idea of one man who noticed a need for good reliable information for disabled people in Derby back in 1993. The charity grew quickly securing new funding and grants and is now one of the biggest User led Organisations in the East Midlands
We have set up several Social Enterprises that not only support people in Derby but across the country; the Payroll service being one of them, which is helping people from Newcastle to Kent. Even though DD has had to change over the years, our ethos has stayed the same throughout this time and we continue to give a personalised individual service to anyone who needs support.
We have answered over 80,000 enquiries in the last 20 years and although our projects may change our mission statement remains.
“To facilitate independent living opportunities for disabled people”
