We promote independent living for disabled people in Sheffield. By independent living we mean that disabled people have the same freedom and rights to exercise choice and control over their own lives as any other person.

We are committed to the ‘social approach’ to disability, rather than the ‘medical approach’. People with impairments are disabled by the barriers they face in every day life – such as inaccessible communication formats, people’s attitudes or inaccessible buildings – not by the way minds and bodies work. This approach has now been adopted as good practice by central government, Sheffield City Council and NHS Sheffield as well as internationally.

Our Aims are:

  • To work with and encourage disabled people to take control over their lives and achieve full participation in society – at home, at work and in the community.
  • To strengthen the participation and voice of disabled people within the planning, delivery and monitoring of resources and services to support independent living.
  • To work in partnership with the public, private, voluntary community and faith sectors in the best interests of disabled people.
  • To deliver responsive, high quality and professional services and projects that meet needs identified by disabled people to support independent living.
