Welcome To Council on Disability

We provide assistance to Forth Valley residents with all kinds of forms and benefits named below

favicon3_edited.png

In the last year CoD has raised £2.2 million for clients!
This is money which has gone back into the local community.

Community Links

We have been priviledged to work with the community link workers for Stirling and Clackmannanshire over the past year.

They can refer clients from GP practices who may require help with benefits etc and have given us good feedback. We have been pleased to do the same and believe that this has been a mutually positive experience which we look forward to continuing.
