We promote the rights of disabled people across all the services we provide: Employment, Youth, Welfare Benefits and Direct Payments.
We ensure that disabled people can make informed decisions about their own lives.
We work to see a fairer, more inclusive society and we challenge discrimination if we see it.
We work in partnership with other organisations promoting the rights of disabled people, because we are stronger together.
We support disabled Londoners both looking for work and in work.
We are a partner on a number of supported internships in West London for young people.
We work with employers to make sure that their workplace is inclusive.
We work with young disabled Hammersmith and Fulham residents aged 11 to 25.
We make sure young people can take part in activities they choose, and support them to reach their full potential.
We offer free benefits advice to disabled adults and children of all ages, (including parents and carers of disabled children) living in the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.
We are excited to announce that we have a co-produced Direct Payment Service which started March 2020.
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.
