MK CIL is an information centre which provides a very wide range of free and confidential information on any disability related issue for disabled people, their families, carers and anyone else with an interest in the field of disability. The aim of MK CIL is to inform and empower by giving information and support to significantly contribute to the lifestyle and independence of disabled people. Our service is friendly and is responsive to individual needs
SUCO is created and led by disabled people and carers. Its aim is to campaign for better services for service users and carers locally and to represent their views and concerns. In particular it is focused on influencing the design and delivery of Adult Social Care Services and on recruiting and supporting people to do this. SUCO works to the Social Model of Disability, which says that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by a person’s impairment or difference. The Social Model of Disability looks at ways of removing barriers so disabled people can be independent and equal in society, with choice and control over their own lives.
