Please read this important message from our CEO, Melanie Hawman.

“To our valued customers and service users:
Following the prime minister’s announcement this evening and in order to avoid the risk of spreading the virus to our vulnerable staff and clients The Disability Resource Centre will not be open to the public until advised it is safe to do so.
We will continue to offer updated information on our website and telephone advice lines.
We have been busy planning for this eventuality and are confident that we will be able to offer all of our current services during this time with the exception of our groups work. Your advisor will be in contact with you to update you on your course and how we can still work with you.
If you have an appointment with another organisation which is based at The Disability Resource Centre you will need to speak to them directly to see what action they would like you to take.”
We are here to help
Our hard-working team offers a telephone helpline on 01582 470 900, open Monday to Friday in office hours. Or email us anytime.
During the coronavirus crisis we can help you access reliable health and support information, and also put you in contact with NHS services to get medications delivered.
We are here with a listening ear too, offering emotional support to disabled people, people with long term health conditions, carers and families.
We’re compiling a list of links to charities for many of the health conditions listed in the NHS guide to social distancing. Many conditions are included like asthma, COPD, kidney, heart and liver conditions – plus many more. Take a look at our page for full details.
