Unlimited Oxfordshire is focused on "Opening Doors and Widening Horizons" for people with physical and sensory disabilities, to enable us all to have the same opportunities as other residents, to enjoy social events and activities. Together we can help to bring awareness to the community and educate them on the changes needed to allow easier access for us all.
We are a user-led organisation which welcomes those with hidden disabilities - primarily Fibromyalgia, Diabetes and Mental Health Impairment. Wiishes challenges stigma and encourages wider understanding by learning about disability through engaging with local services and activities and we are committed to Service User Involvement at local and county levels. Our strong links with the Wealden Disability Involvement Group is one way that enables us to support members to participate in consultation projects involving Health and Social Care. Our aim is to equip our members to live and lead more fulfilling and active lives despite their conditions, by helping them with aspects including education, training, personal development and life skills.
West Berkshire Independent Living Network is controlled by service users and carers. WBILN aims to deliver care and support services, stand alone, in partnership with other voluntary sector organisations, and / or in co-production with statutory bodies (e.g. West Berkshire Council) to local residents requiring such service. WE also aim to promote independence and community involvement, and help people affected by disabilities lead fulfilled lives and meet their aspirations.
