Forward Mid Directory 2016

Welcome to the 2016 edition of Forward Mid’s Directory for Disabled People.

There is an old adage that says ‘Information is power.’

This is certainly true for disabled people. Without correct, relevant and up to date information disabled people can become isolated, unable to exercise their rights, receive the support they need and make their own choices on how they want to live.

I know from personal experience the helplessness and frustration I felt when I suddenly became disabled 10 years ago. Who could help me with the mysteries of the benefits system? Who could I contact for help and support? Who could help me live an ordinarily life? Where can I get this information?

The purpose of the Forward Mid directory is to help disabled people, their families or carers find practical, useful information which could improve their lives. To find answers to the same questions I had 10 years ago as well as solutions to the everyday problems which still seem part of the territory for disabled people.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of contacts that have all the answers but I’m sure that if the group or organisation you contact can’t help you then they will know someone who can.
