The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) defines a disabled person as someone who has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. You may feel you are not ‘disabled’ even if you fall within the definition; that’s up to you.
Many people feel they are disabled by society’s barriers rather than any impairment they may have. Don’t forget that you can get support if you are disabled and think you have been discriminated against.
From here you can find information about rights, access, transport, legislation, equipment, hearing and visual impairment.
Did you know about your local Neighbourhood Network organisation? They offer different support and activities in later life.
If you're looking for a particular service you could also try the LeedsDirectory.
From this page you can find everything on Infostore listed alphabetically in the yellow tabs just above this text.
You can use these tabs to narrow down the list according to what you are looking for, just click on the one you are interested in.
If a tab is grey it means there is nothing listed for that type of information.
Chosing one of the topics (Blue badges, for example) on the left hand side of the page will give you a shorter list of results.
Alternatively, you can use the search box or the A-Z index in the purple bar above.
Just looking for organisations or events in your area?
‘Choose a neighbourhood' - in the purple box on the right hand side of this page - allows you to only see organisations and events in your area. If you want to go back to seeing everything click on ‘show all Leeds’ at the bottom of the same box.
