Welfare and Wellbeing
Do you have a disability and need advice or information about your daily welfare and wellbeing?
Or are you a carer who’s responsible for organising life around disability barriers?
Having a disability, impairment, or long-term health issue comes with its own unique set of welfare and wellbeing challenges, so does caring for someone with a disability.
Whatever you need information or advice on, our Can Do team can support you in making informed decisions.
We’re here for you and the community.
Let us help.
