Disability North promotes inclusion, independence and choice for disabled people across North East England. Tweets by Kievah, Fundraising & Events Officer. We are a user led charity which works with, and for, disabled people, enabling them to increase the control they have over their own lives. Disability North works to support disabled people throughout the North East of England. Experience has shown us that regardless of a disability being from a lifelong impairment, an accident, illness or advancing age, people are usually poorly informed about disability benefits, welfare rights and the availability and suitability of assistive equipment. We know that the challenges disabled people face relate not only to managing and adapting to a health condition or impairment, but also to the associated financial stresses. It is our mission to advise and guide disabled people through these issues. We run a programme of fundraising events and challenges throughout the year culminating in DNEX, our very own Independent Living Exhibition which is amongst the largest in the UK.
