Who Are We?

Disability Sheffield – Centre for Independent Living will help disabled people to overcome the barriers that prevent them from being fully included in society through the promotion of choice, control and independence.

DSCIL is a grassroots, not for profit organisation driven by disabled people and we :

• Promote independent living

• Focus on the barriers to services that people face, not specific impairments

• Promote people’s human and legal rights

• Are peer support based

• Cover all local disabled people, carers and other people who use support either directly or via establishing links with other local organisations and networks

• Are non-discriminatory and recognise and work with diversity in terms of race, religion and belief, gender, sexual orientation, disability and age

• Recognise that carers have their own needs and requirements as carers

• Engage the organisation’s constituents in decision-making processes at every level of our organisation

• Work with national Government and statutory bodies in Sheffield as a Centre for Inclusive Living actively promoting the rights of disabled, older people and carers

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
