what we do

Fighting for disabled people, inspiring change

Since 1975, we have been providing legal advice and representation to disabled people to challenge the poverty and inequality they face across the UK every day.

Our commitment to our work means that we want to show people there is a better future for disabled people – for themselves and for those they care about – and that we can help create this change with support, advice and training.

However, we continue to fight for access to justice and their disabled rights within the law and courts. We need your help to continue our work and deliver our services.

disability in the uk

There are around 14.1 million disabled people in the UK.

We receive over 4,000 calls and emails each year and we know this number will continue to increase. That’s why we want to help as many people as possible.

To do this, the Disability Law Service relies on grants and donations to ensure we can continue to provide support where it’s needed.

But, we need your help. We want to help create a fairer society, where communities and individuals view disabled people with equal respect and appreciation.
