About Disability Peterborough

  • Introduction

    About Us

    Disability Peterborough was established over 30 years ago to support local physically disabled people and their families. We are a disability user led charity, with 75% of our staff, volunteers and trustees being disabled.

    We support over 5000 local people every year, dealing with over 40,000 phone enquires. Our services include:

    • One-on-one holistic support, working on all aspects of an individual’s life. We provide guidance on everything linked with disability, including: education, legal rights, employment, equality/discrimination, benefits, blue badges. We have a ‘Credability Quality Mark’ for our disability casework.
    • Advocacy and influencing for disability rights, locally and at a national/governmental level.
    • Different health and well-being services, with social inclusion, health and co-production at their core.
    • Shopmobility, a scheme that loans out wheelchairs and scooters so that disabled people can access the city centre and Queensgate shopping centre.

    No other organisation offers our services for physically disabled people in the area.
