Who Are We and What Do We Do?
Halton Disability Partnership (HDP) is a charity, founded in 2010,which provides information, advice and support for disabled people, and their families, in the Merseyside Borough of Halton.
There are 25,000 disabled people in Halton, 22% of the population, significantly higher than the national average of 18%. Our aim is to reduce the isolation experienced by, and improve the quality of service for, disabled people in the Borough. We do this partly by helping people directly, partly by supporting people in accessing the most appropriate service, and partly by enabling disabled people to be influential at a policy-making level.
HDP is a Disabled People User Led Organisation (DPULO). A majority of our Trustees are disabled people. We have some paid staff, but our volunteers, many of them disabled people, make a vital contribution to our work.
There are three ways in which we work to improve the lives of disabled people:
– Providing Information and Advice on a range of issues of concern to disabled people.
– Providing an Advice and Support service for people in receipt of Direct Payments.
– Enabling people to join is – as volunteers, as Forum members, as supporters and socially. Click on the link below to find out how to join us.
HDP receives funding from the Big Lottery, Halton Borough Council and the Government Office for Disability Issues.
