Local disability campaigner, Kenny Shand
Disability Help Scotland has been designed to help individuals with disability issues making them aware of current legislation which can be brought to the attention of the relevant company’s and businesses making them aware of the changing legislation, moving closer to work towards changing practices and approaches by resolving issues together.
As a independent disabled volunteer I have been inundated with request from individuals who found it difficult to access information from the Internet, you will be able to search this site finding information and links about a range of disability help. I hope that, throughout this website, you will find a consistent style and structure to navigate and search quickly to the problem or issue you have, find the answer and resolve the problem.
