Disability North

Disability North is a free Independent Living Service which promotes social inclusion, independence and choice for disabled and older people in the North East of England and Cumbria. Disability North is a user led registered charity which works with, and for, disabled people, empowering them to maximise the control they have over their own lives. Our Service Team can provide information and advice on equipment and activities for daily living (ADL), benefits and Direct Payments as well as advising on many other aspects of disability and signposting to other organisations who can help.

Our Mission: Disability North promotes inclusion, independence and choice for disabled people in the region.

The post is based within Disability North Events, a trading arm within the charity. The Events Team has a critical role in maintaining and promoting the profile of the organisation as well as being a significant primary source of income generation.
