Supporting people with physical disabilities
If you or one of your family are affected by a physical disability, we will work with you to agree how we can best give appropriate support.
We will help you access a range of services so you can live as independently as possible. We will assess your needs and establish what options are best for you.
Joint Physical Disability Planning Group
