Foreword

Welcome to the 2017 edition of Forward Mid’s Directory for Disabled People.

"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating."

Kofi Annan

I know from personal experience how frustrating it can be when you desperately need help or support and don’t know who can provide it. It’s something that most, if not all, disabled people I’ve spoken to have experienced - it’s almost seen as a rite of passage. But it shouldn’t be - information is a fundamental need for disabled people.

Our aim with this directory is to give physically disabled people, their families, their carers and people with long-term conditions practical, relevant, up-to-date and hopefully liberating information - information that can give people the knowledge and therefore the power they need to take control of how they want to live their lives.

Many thanks to my colleagues in Forward Mid and all our partners in producing this, the 5th edition Directory For Physically Disabled People.
