Disabled Police Association

The Disabled Police Association was founded in July 2012 in response to a need for a coordinated response to national policing matters affecting disabled officers and staff within the police services of the United Kingdom.

The DPA is run by an Executive Committee made up of serving officers and police staff, drawn from all ranks and grades from police forces across the UK. National representatives meet regularly to discuss employment issues within the police service relating to disability, injury and illness. Support for individual officers and staff is provided by Force disability support networks.

Our Association holds no financial budget, and we receive no government funding.

(If you need assistance with autism, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia, ADHD or other neurodiverse conditions, our sister group the National Police Autism Association also offers personal advice and support.)

Disabled Access Day

Address: Disabled Access Day,
c/o Euan’s Guide,CodeBase,38 Castle Terrace,Edinburgh, EH3 9DZ

In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good access and to create opportunities for people to try something new. The day was very much about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists in places, experiences such as going on a touch tour, enjoying a relaxed peformance, sensory experiences, signed events, level access and of course a warm welcome!

The Day was founded against the backdrop of wanting to make it easy for disabled people to try something new. Often these activities and experiences are hard to arrange or create a sense of anxiety and fear. 

Our founder, Paul’s experience of wanting to try getting on a bus with his powerchair but not in the rush hour of a weekday service was the catalyst. He describes it as a day for focusing on creating opportunities for people to attend a series of organised events where they will receive a warm welcome, a chance to try something new and the memory of having done something different. He wants 2019′s events and experiences to have a legacy. Just like his telling the story of trying a bus for the first time. 

Disabled People are encouraged having tried something new, or visited somewhere new, to share their story so that others can follow. A review on Euan’s Guide, a tweet on social media or a blog post all help to make it easier for others considering a similar visit or experience.

Contact Form: https://www.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/contact-us/contact-form

Address: Royal Voluntary Service, Cardiff Gate, Beck Court, Cardiff Gate Business Park, CARDIFF, CF23 8RP

To mark our 75th anniversary, WRVS have relaunched as Royal Voluntary Service. Along with a new name, we also have a new logo, and a new slogan: ‘together for older people’ Research shows that the name WRVS (which stood for Women’s Royal Voluntary Service) did not reflect what we do, and hindered new people understanding and feeling inspired by our work. ‘Royal Voluntary Service’ is more easily understood; it conveys a sense of our history and belief in the power of volunteering, as one of the largest volunteer organisations in Britain  It is also more inclusive, showing that we are here for men as well as women.

Older people tell us there are five key conditions that need to be in place to live well:

  • Respect for who I am
  • I can get the help I want
  • I feel in control
  • I feel that I belong
  • I have people I can trust’

RVS can help:

In the home: Meals on Wheels, Home library services, Good Neighbours, Community transport

In the community: Lunch clubs, Social centres and community clubs, Information centres and cafes, Community centres and cafes

In hospitals: Hospital shops and cafes, Home from Hospital, Greeting and guiding, Patient support, Gifting

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living is a ‘virtual’ healthy living centre working primarily in Shrewsbury, but also with a Shropshire-wide remit.

We use the term ‘virtual’ because we do not have premises of our own, preferring to use a variety of community venues across the area to provide activities within communities – in other words we want to spend as much of our funding as possible on people rather than places.

Our aim is to reduce health inequalities (by which we mean reducing the gap between the health of different groups of people such as the well-off compared to poorer communities or people with different ethnic backgrounds), by giving people the skills, opportunities and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyles.

We do this by providing free or low cost practical activities that can help people to live healthier and more fulfilled lives.

Building Better Opportunities-This project will provide pre-employment support within Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin for people aged 19 and over who are not in work. It focuses on those who are furthest from the labour market, helping them engage in activity to move towards and into employment and is funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund.

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living are delivering a variety of taster sessions and courses as part of this programme. We have three themes: Health & Wellbeing, Cookery and Exercise. To find out more click here www.throughthedoorway.btck.co.uk/BuildingBetterOpportunities
