We are Equal Lives. A disability rights organisation based in Norfolk and Suffolk. We exist to support people of any age who face disabling barriers and we are dedicated to making their voices heard. We are a user led organisation (ULO), meaning we are led by people who access care and support services themselves - with every member of our board identifying as disabled. We believe in supporting people to empower themselves to live independent lives. We do this through valuable services including Information & Advice, Advocacy, Shopmobility and Campaigning. Our mission for disabled people’s independence is why we work to the Social Model of Disability. Developed by disabled people, this model is a progressive way of viewing the world and says that individuals are limited by barriers within society and not by their own impairments or differences. Our aim is to breakdown these disabling barriers and work with people to achieve the life they choose. Here’s how we could support you: Campaigning on issues that directly affect you; Providing Advice and Information for your day-to-day tasks of living; A Shopmobility Scheme based in Norwich; Providing Advocacy for example if you need to make a complaint about something and have difficulty communicating; Payroll services if you employ your own PA or carer; Membership services including a closed Facebook group and ways to meet new people
