Physical Disability Services
The main objective of this service is to help people aged between 18 and 64 who have a physical disability or sensory impairment to maintain their independence and continue living in their own homes and communities.
We aim to help remove the barriers which stand in the way of people with disabilities pursuing their chosen lifestyle by providing a range of services, support and advice to help them live as independently as possible in their own home.
