Advice & Information Project
Disability Network Hounslow provides relief for people with disabilities by striving to create a more inclusive environment for all disabled people and improving service users lives by helping them gain independence, freedom of choice and opportunities for full participation in the community: opportunities that their able bodied peers take for granted.
DNH alleviates poverty and suffering by providing information, advice and advocacy to access rights; work; education; services; housing and benefits. ‘At 30%, the poverty rate among those aged 25 to retirement who are disabled is twice the rate for those who are not disabled. This ‘excess’ poverty risk for disabled people is larger than it was a decade ago.' – Monitoring poverty and social exclusion 2007 – Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the New Policy Institute.
