About Us

Disability Alliance, publishers of the annual Disability Rights Handbook, is regarded as the leading authority on social security benefits for disabled people.

Disability Alliance was set up in 1974. It provides information about benefits through its publications and website. There are over 50 factsheets available free on the website. It campaigns for improvements to the benefits system through its policy work.

We are now Disability Rights UK – formed through a unification of Disability Alliance, Radar and National Centre for Independent Living on 1 January 2012. We aim to be the largest national pan-disability organisation led by disabled people.

Disability Rights UK will be led, run and controlled by disabled people, with disabled people making up at least three-quarters of its board members.

Disability Rights UK will focus on:

•promoting “meaningful” independent living for disabled people
•promoting disabled people’s leadership and control
•breaking the link between disability and poverty
•campaigning for disability equality and human rights
