Disabled Cornwall

Enable in Cornwall is a charity which provides disabled individuals living in Cornwall with educational and career information. A disability is a condition or function judged to be significantly impaired relative to the usual standard of an individual or their group. The term is often used to refer to individual functioning, including physical impairment, sensory impairment, cognitive impairment, intellectual impairment or mental health issue.

Disability Cornwall

Under the Disability Discrimination Act (1995, extended in 2005), it is unlawful for organisations to discriminate (treat a disabled person less favourably, for reasons related to the person's disability, without justification) in employment; access to goods, facilities, services; managing, buying or renting land or property; education. Businesses must make "reasonable adjustments" to their policies or practices, or physical aspects of their premises, to avoid indirect discrimination.

Introduction.

It is with great sadness that I must share the news that Enable in Cornwall is closing after 21 years of supporting adults with disabilities to be more independent, to find work and training and to have their voices heard.


We have existed for the past 4 years on very precarious fundraising and with massive help from our corporate sponsors Proper Cornish and all their staff.
Unfortunately we just can't sustain this without any help from the local authority or NHS. 


If you need the kind of help that Enable have offered, please ring Cornwall Council Adult Social Care 0300 1234 131 or Disability Cornwall 01736 759500



It has been a privilege to know and work with you.
