Our supporters & Partners

Since TDU launched, we’ve spoken with loads of organisations that have offered their support to us. We also work with a number of disabled-led organisations to provide our members with services, guidance and advice.

Mi-Spend

Mi-Spend have kindly offered to give our members 10% off* their setup fee.

“The founders of Mi-Spend recognise the challenges and frustrations that people with learning difficulties or cognitive impairment have when accessing their spending money through traditional means. Today’s world is going cashless and we realise that a full range of spending options isn’t accessible to all as it should be. Mi-Spend was created because we believe everyone should be able to access their spending money as they wish, thereby creating financial inclusion.

Paranimo

Paranimo matches you with the right therapist for your needs, and offers regular sessions with your therapists over secure online video calls, ensuring you get full access to your treatment whether rain or snow, COVID or new normal (which can’t come soon enough!).

We have partnered with Paranimo in order to provide our members with therapy from qualified psychotherapists. This pilot programme entitles 50 members of The Disability Union to six free therapy sessions. If there is enough interest, we will be looking at expanding this offer to cover even more of our members.

 

Disability Horizons

Disability Horizons magazine is an online disability lifestyle publication that aims to give disabled people a voice. TDU has been working closely with DH to amplify the voices of our members, cover the union’s news and updates and to produce content together.

Founded by two disabled guys in 2011, Disability Horizons publishes articles on a wide variety of topics, all to support the aim of a world where disabled people live exactly as they choose to.

Evenbreak

Connecting talented disabled job seekers with inclusive companies. Evenbreak offer disability jobs and resources on diversity and inclusion in the workplace

Employers told us they struggled to attract disabled candidates. And disabled candidates told us they couldn’t tell which employers were inclusive. So, we joined the dots and created the UK’s most accessible job board to connect the two. The employers who advertise on Evenbreak are actively aiming to attract disabled candidates and the registered candidates (somewhere in the region of 33,000 at the time of writing) want to work for inclusive companies.

Diversity & Ability

D&A is a disabled-led social enterprise supporting students, organisations and social justice projects to create inclusive cultures.

Diversity and Ability is an award-winning disabled-led social enterprise paving the way for a future where everyone is welcomed and included.”

Action Duchenne

In November 2020, the union’s Co-Founder George Baker spoke at their conference. Ever since, we have been working together to best support TDU members who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy and their family members through webinars and education.

Carer support wiltshire

Carer Support Wiltshire helps unpaid carers to access support, services, education and training, and breaks from their caring role. CSW have been valuable to our members across the country in terms of sign-posting, given their wealth of knowledge and experience in the sector.

We help carers to access services, information, education and training, respite, and breaks from their caring role. We ensure they have a voice that is heard and work with health and social care professionals and employers to raise carer awareness and develop best practice.

Little Lives UK

The Disability Union received a £1500 grant from Little Lives UK to support our sensory group project for children who are disabled to help them with their confidence and communication skills. We are extremely grateful for this grant, which has been used towards the running of these sensory sessions and the equipment needed to run them.

“Little Lives UK are proud to be a children’s charity who support disabled and disadvantaged children and young people to help them build stronger futures. Working within our communities we identify some of the major problems that children are facing and organise projects that will help try to resolve these issues.”

Learning Disability England

Learning Disability England exists to make life better with people with Learning Disabilities and their families. In October 2020, LDE began supporting us through a grant to provide support to our autistic and neurodivergent members.

We aim to make sure:

  • What is important to people with Learning Disabilities is heard and understood:
  • There is a change in behaviour in service design and delivery that builds on rights
  • Demonstrate co-production and real collaborative working making a difference
  • Live our values and model the change we want

LiveYou

LiveYou exists to help identify and create the right social care packages for disabled young adults. When it’s appropriate, we work with LiveYou to support our members in exactly that. But that’s not all; since November 2020, we have also worked with Dan and Sam (LiveYou’s co-founders) to organise joint webinars and educational events.

LiveYou helps young disabled adults secure the perfect support package to experience a fully independent life. Through our comprehensive service, we assist young disabled adults to make all the necessary preparations to become truly independent.

Access Your Life

Access Your Life was created in the hope of relieving some of the struggles disabled people and carers face every day, by encouraging disabled people and carers to share their experiences. Whether that may be in the form of a product review, blog post or an advert for a second-hand device!

Sharing real reviews and pre-loved medical equipment, so that people living with a disability can achieve a brighter future!
