Parability is a user led organisation, founded by Chris Hall. Its aims are to promote and aim for a society of a united human race which was without any division when it came to equality, diversity and access. We aim to promote the principals and therefore actively encourage a society which operates based on good community values where we all help each other. We also believe everyone has their part to play in ensuring that they remain as independent and active as they can. As a result we aim, through sports, fitness and activity groups, to ensure the closure of any gaps in the market which prevent people having the opportunity to do this.

SCIL is an organisation of Disabled People firmly rooted in the British and international Disability Movement, born of the civil rights campaigns that shook the western world during the sixties, the guiding principle being that disability issues are human rights issues. We work to the Social Model of Disability which defines disability in terms of negative attitudes and discrimination caused by a society which fails to meet the needs of people with impairments. We are a non-profit making Community Interest Company (CIC); have a membership comprising ‘full members’ (Disabled People) and ‘associate members’ (non-Disabled allies); and operate a committee structure fully accountable to our membership. We are committed to the principle of equality of opportunity for all people, recognising that people are oppressed and can experience discrimination on the grounds of class, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual identity, as well as impairment. The centre is run by and for Disabled People to promote the meaningful inclusion of Disabled People into the community. By ‘Disabled People’ we refer to people with a physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological, emotional, or any other hidden impairment. We therefore include people with learning difficulties, system survivors, cancer survivors and those living with HIV/AIDS. We see our roles as providing ‘user led’ services and campaigning for the rights of Disabled People.
