Twenty four service users of the DRC have achieved an accredited qualification in work related business administration skills. The DRC worked in partnership with two organisations ‘Open College Network West Midlands’ and ‘Right Step Careers’.
‘Right Step’ staff visited the DRC to assess and enrol service users onto the accredited training course and further provided individuals with careers advice and guidance, enabling people with disabilities to explore their skills whilst discussing with them further progression opportunities towards employment.
The national charity Listening Books runs an audiobook library service for people who find it difficult to read or hold a book due to an illness, disability, mental health issue or learning difficulty such as Dyslexia, giving members access to thousands of audiobooks on MP3 CD, as downloads from the website and through internet streaming.
In 2015 the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) launched a new service called Help at Home. We deliver a range of products and services to disabled people, older people, those with long term health conditions, their families and carers.
