Disability First Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) has been supporting people since 1992, through the specialist provision of services across Lancashire and Cumbria. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary last year. We were awarded the Most Outstanding Blackpool Charity in 2018 in recognition of the charity which has made the most difference in the community.
What we do:• Volunteering – Training and support for volunteers in areas such as administration, helpline support, benefits adviser, fundraising and research. • Health and Wellbeing Information – Our volunteer advisors provide a telephone helpline information service between 10am and 4pm. • Welfare Benefit Service – Helping with an initial assessment to ensure people are claiming their rights and entitlements. This is a critical service for clients with mental health problems, autism or learning difficulties • Access Fylde Coast – Working with businesses in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre to create and accessible and welcoming experience for visitors and local people
Activities:We are one of the few charities on the Fylde Coast that provide a comprehensive Welfare Benefit Service. At grass roots level we help people with disabilities and their families to complete their disability benefit forms, and provide advice by phone.
