Knowledge and expertise
Since its inception in 1992, the DRC has helped and supported in excess of 70,000 disabled people, their carers and families.
During this time, we have developed an excellent knowledge and understanding of the issues and barriers they face and how best to overcome them.
As a User-led organisation, 80% of our Board of Directors are disabled, 65% of our current workforce class themselves as disabled or having a limiting long term health condition and 100% of our volunteer team are disabled.
We are therefore in the unique position of having our own personal experience of disability in addition to those of our service users.
