National Disability Information Provision

summary:

For the first time, details of nearly 600 local disability information and advice providers in England are brought together in one directory. Area by area, it includes information about the activities of each organisation and a brief description of the information service offered. Where local disability information providers work together as a federation, the activities of the federation are described and its members listed.

It is hoped that this directory will facilitate cooperation between information services in each area. It is also hoped that national information providers, as well as cross-boundary local services, will take advantage of this directory to improve communication and encourage cooperation on a larger scale.

The directory includes a brief introduction which touches on some of the issues concerning local information providers and is invaluable to anyone concerned with disability information and advice services, locally or nationally.
