We are saddened to announce the retirement of our CEO Alan Reid due to ill health. Alan was passionate about our welfare benefits service and crucial in developing our Clasag – Cumbria & Lancashire Asbestos Support Advice Group and Access Fylde Coast Project. We would like to thank Alan for his work for the charity for many years and wish him well for the future.
Would YOU like to help a great local charity help others? We know time is precious, its the new currency. Time weighs heavily when you are worrying – whether it is about the health and welfare of a loved one, how to juggle finances, or access services, which open a window on the world. We know others want your help too. If recent events have taught us nothing else, it is that charity may well begin at home, but it does not end there – the sense of community engendered extends way beyond that. Charities such as ours help stitch together the gaps in society’s safety net. We catch people when – or ideally long before – they fall. Disability First CIO has not survived by helping people merely get by; we help them thrive by providing specialist and critical services. We right wrongs, create opportunities, fight their corner and stand shoulder to shoulder with others. Now we are seeking new trustees to join our Management Board and help us do so much more within the ‘new’ normality of a very different and even more challenging and changing world. We already offer a range of projects, some of them overlapping, all of them crucial, such as digital training, welfare benefits advice & intervention and volunteer recruitment. They all aim to enable disabled people, of all ages, to live independently – and have quality of life. In addition, we provide infrastructure support to organisations within the disability field, including access audits, advice, and training. We do not expect them to go it alone, nor should we, that is why we need you.
