Action on Disability is working on a Digital Inclusion Project. We will be offering 1:1 training sessions on how to use technology remotely so that you can stay connected with peer support groups, online discussion groups, family and/or friends.
Unfortunately, Covid-19 has affected our volunteer-led peer support groups and disabled individuals as well as our disabled members and the local community. This project aims to tackle the isolation and loneliness that has been felt by many this year.
If you are interested in getting involved in this project and would like to find our more information, please email: email@example.com or call 0207 385 2098.
Thanks to receiving funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund and to the Government for making this project possible.
Action on Disability relies heavily on the generosity of its members, volunteers and supporters to carry out its work. We use the money we receive to work with, empower, and represent disabled people.
As COVID-19 continues to affect all our lives, we want to let you know that during this lockdown, Action on Disability will remain fully operational.
The health and safety of our service users, employees, volunteers and suppliers remains our highest priority while we continue to provide you with the support you need from us: Welfare Benefits, Direct Payments, Youth and/or Employment.
It continues to be business as usual, although much of the team will be carrying out their roles from home where they can, in line with the Government guidelines.
You’ll still be able to contact us on the phone and online, we’ve also introduced virtual support so that we can organise online meetings and/or technical support via Zoom or other video chat platforms. Our phone system enables us to redirect your calls straight to our staff working from home. Please find all of the numbers listed below:
