We are an independent charitable organisation set up in 1992. We are entirely run by volunteers, some with a disability.
This gives us greater understanding of our clients' needs as we know first hand some of the difficulties they face.
Wider Forth Valley
We assist and support around 500 people each year to access their rights
Our aim is to offer practical and emotional support and advice to anyone in Stirling and the surrounding area who has, or cares for, someone who has a disability or chronic health condition.
We strive to tackle inequalities. Our volunteers will help clients access their rights and support them, be it navigating the welfare benefit system, assist with housing applications, aids, grants or welfare fund assistance. This is always done with sensitivity and respect.
Clients will often come back to us when they just want someone to listen.
