About this organisation
We aim to be operational in Summer 2021. Our initial services will focus on providing Peer Support to new and existing Direct Payment Holders. We shall also operate a Personal Assistant Register matching Direct Payment Holders and Personal Assistants, creating employment opportunities for residents of Haringey who would like to work in social care. We shall also offer information and advice to disabled people. We will be a pan-disability user-led organisation. We will become the voice of disabled people living and working in Haringey. Our vision is: An inclusive Haringey, free of disabling barriers, where diversity and human rights are valued and where Deaf and disabled people have dignity, independence and equality of opportunity.
Going forward we shall campaign for the rights of disabled people and provide services designed by and for disabled people. Further details about opening times, our website and landline numbers for the organisation will follow.
