Federation of Disabled People

The Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People promotes independence and dignity for all people.

The Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People is a user led organisation that works towards equality by inspiring disabled people to identify barriers and define solutions. The Federation offers advice and support to individuals, to member organisations and to other groups involved in disability issues.

The Disability Advice Centre provides information and advice about disability matters. They also run a Benefits Support Service offering people information, advice and assistance in completing benefits claim forms.

The Accessible City Guide is a web-based access information guide for residents and visitors to the City, providing informative reviews on local hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes and attractions.

Shopmobility provides manual and powered wheelchairs and scooters to members of the public to enable them to have the freedom to travel anywhere within the City.

Get Involved is a community project which seeks to represent the views, experience and opinions of disabled people, carers and those impacted by disability to provide disability expertise on various influential local working groups and forums. Earlier this year, as a result of engagement between Get Involved and Brighton and Sussex Universities Hospitals Trusts, Pas and carers are now able to visit the disabled person they are supporting in hospital 24-hours a day.?

The Counselling Service provides low cost, independent counselling to disabled people, their families, friends and carers.
