Disability Cornwall
Welcome to disAbility Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Welcome to our new website, which we hope you will find useful, enjoyable and easy to navigate.

 

We are a user-led and membership organisation for people living with a long term health condition or disability, their carers and families in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly of all ages.

 

We have nearly 20 years' experience of helping to create a more inclusive society using our RISE approach:

 

Represent  Include  Support  Empower

 

We deliver a range of frontline support services for children Donate PayPalor adults living with a
long term health condition or disability, their
families and carers. In addition, we also support community organisations and businesses to develop more inclusive approaches to meeting the needs of their clients and customers.

 

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has a higher than average proportion of people whose day-to-day lives are limited by a long term health condition or disability, equating to 114,023 or 21.33% of the population, much higher than the UK average. In addition, Cornwall remains one of the poorest areas in the whole of Europe, with average incomes well below the rest of the UK.

 

Despite decades of disability rights legislation, significant barriers to full independence, choice and control still exist for disabled people and, by default, their families and carers. Inaccessible services, premises and workplaces, a poor public transport infrastructure and negative perceptions of disabled people are still a sad reality.

 

However, while we clearly still have a long way to go before disabled people can enjoy the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, we believe that working positively and proactively with our membership and service providers will increase the economic and social well-being of all citizens in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

 

Should you require any further information about our organisation and our services or you wish to give us some feedback on our website, you can contact us here.

We look forward to hearing from you.
