Disability Direct 2019

Disability Direct is a user-led organisation, run/ managed by disabled people for disabled people, providing information, advice, activities and advocacy where required.

Set up in 1993 Disability Direct is a charity born from the idea of one man who noticed a need for good reliable information for disabled people in Derby. The charity grew quickly and is now one of the biggest User led Organisations in the East Midlands. Setting up several Social Enterprises that not only support people in Derby but across the country; the Payroll service being one of them, which is helping people from Newcastle to Kent.


Even though DD has had to change over the years, their ethos has stayed the same throughout this time and continue to give a personalised individual service to anyone who needs support.
