Our outreach service is visiting a town or village near you

The Disability Resource Centre outreach service aims to reach as many communities as possible in Bedford, Luton, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. It particularly concentrates on those living in rural areas, those from minority groups and those who may have extra difficulties and needs.

The service visits libraries, groups, clubs, health centres, village halls, supermarkets and health professionals to promote the work of The Disability Resource Centre and provide information and help on any disability-related matters.

The aim of this service is to reach people of all ages, with any disability or health difficulties, both long and short term, helping them to access services and to find the information they need.

Please pass on information about these outreach events to your friends and neighbours.
