"…to facilitate independent living opportunities for disabled people…"
Disability Direct prides itself in being able to make a difference to disabled people, older people and carers residing in Nottingham. Disabled means different things to different people; perhaps you have a mental health problem, perhaps you are dyslexic, or maybe you have an illness which affects your day-to-day life. Your disability is individual to you and at Disability Direct we will work with you in relation to your unique needs.
We promote positive change in a non-political and non-campaigning way. As an organisation we have a strong sense of commitment to empower people to make their own choices and make positive decisions about independent living opportunities - and so improve their quality of life.
Recently it has been identified that there was a need to create a User Led Organisation (ULO) in Nottingham to provide a “one-stop-shop” for information and advice. We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in bidding for funds, which means that we have been able to move to a more accessible location where our members and volunteers are able to have easier access.
Disability Direct Nottingham helps disabled people, older people and carers who live in the City of Nottingham by offering the following services;
Welfare Rights Adviser
Disability direct offers a welfare rights advice service for people who have questions regarding disability related benefits.
Assistance can also be offered with preparing for benefit appeals and tribunals. Drop-in visits are welcome, but you may find it more helpful to call and book an appointment so you do not make a wasted trip.

Do you have time on your hands? Are you looking for a challenge, or to learn something new? Do you want to improve your skills for your CV? Then why not speak to our Volunteer Coordinator? This service is aimed at, but is not limited to, helping disabled people build on their skill-base.
The best option is to call us, and arrange a visit for a chat, so we can match your needs to the positions available. Send an e-mail to email@example.com or call 0115 958 3948.
If you require any additional support to enable you to get the most out of your time volunteering with us, an informal chat will give us both the opportunity to decide on the best course of action - we can tailor an opportunity to suit you. Perhaps you work for a company that would benefit from having volunteers, then give us a call to make the most of this exciting opportunity.
