About Us

We are a charity run by people with a disability, to help others with a disability, their family, friends, carers, personal assistants and anyone who has an interest in the problems surrounding disability matters.

We are a united voice working together to influence decision makers and campaigning to remove physical, communicational, and attitudinal barriers in our community. Find out more about us.

This website is designed to be the main portal in our area for finding information focused on issues surrounding persons with disabilities.

We do not have paid staff, all those who work for us are volunteers.  An important source of income for the charity is your donations.  Disability Watford could run for a day on a donation of £10.  You can support us by becoming a volunteer, or making a donation.

Disability Watford continues to engage in perennial problems affecting persons with disabilities, including:

  • Inaccessible public transport, particularly buses
  • Issues around blue badges and Disabled parking bays
  • Issues with taxi service, e.g. drivers refusing assistance dogs and overcharging wheelchair users
  • Issues surrounding changes to ‘benefits system’ that directly affect people with disabilities

We are proactively engaged to bring about changes to benefit our local disabled community. Find our more about our Campaigns.
