ACTION ON DISABILITY REMAINS OPEN

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.
