  • Mission statement

    Breakthrough is Manchester based disabled people’s organisation, set up in 1997 by local disabled people and aims for a society where disabled people can participate on the same basis as everyone. Most of our board and staff identify as disabled people themselves and as such we have the expertise to understand how to remove barriers to mainstream employment and independent living.
    We apply and advocate The Social Model of Disability across our work. Our goal is to identify and remove the barriers that disabled people face in society, such as lack of information or access to information, lack of accessible housing, lack of accessible equipment or personal care, institutional barriers such as recruitment practices, lack of accessible transport, organisational culture, poor attitudes and physical access. Our goal is to support disabled people to have the skills and confidence to live independently, and to access services and facilities in their community. We also aim to ensure disabled people understand their rights and that they are valued by people in society. We aim to support the most vulnerable people who are furthest from the job market into volunteering, training and employment. We promote the rights, responsibilities and respect of disabled people. We advise employers, and other organisations to understand and remove any barriers that disadvantage disabled people, and we work with policy makers to create policy that supports disabled people’s wants and needs.
