Our expert and free disability advice service

Disability advice

Our disability advice service is confidential, independent and free.

This service provides up-to-date information and advice to people of any age and with any disability, older people, their families, carers, friends and associated professionals throughout Bedfordshire and Luton.

The advice service is open to everyone, there is no formal referral process and it is free.

Please do ask us a lot of questions. We are all trained and ready to answer.

We can help you with benefits, carers, employment, sport, support groups, training and more.
