A Selection of Organisations I Learned about at "Choice Unlimited" Roadshow
As stated in the introduction to this section I have decided to give you contact details of organisations who either operate nationally or are likely to have some kind of national or local to you equivalent.

I hope to investigate some of these a bit further with a view to giving them a proper write up at a later date.

I am going to make an exception for one organisation who I know only operate in Leicester but I feel I have a pretty solid reason for my decision.  I have had a connection with them in the past and I would not hesitate to recommend them.  Apart from that I agree with their ethics and their way of doing business.  (However, I will get to them later.)

If you have been excluded from Mainstream provision for whatever reason and you are interested in Computer Music - get in touch with Excluded Ltd.  Website:  excluded.org.uk/

Dimensions provide services for people with Autism as well as those with Learning Disabilities,  Website:  www.dimensions-uk.org

Irlen Syndrome is something which affects vision - it is a dysfunction within the visual cortex of the brain which involves hypersensitivity to certain colours.  For further help and support please see www.IrlenUK.com

Senad Group provide support for Disabled People (including those with acquired brain injuries).  They also provide support for people who have had operations.  Website:  www.senadgroup.com.

Chat And Mingle is an online community for adults with Physical, Learning, Psychological conditions and Sensory Impairments.   Website:  www.chatandmingle.co.uk

If you are disabled and you want a friendly insurer who understands your needs go to Fish Insurance.  Website:  www.fishinsurance.co.uk

Here is an idea that I wish I had thought of before these guys.  If you are not disabled you may be puzzled when one of your friends suddenly starts complaining about the access or lighting in a venue which you have never had a problem with.  Disabled Go have taken the nuisance out of getting to a venue and realising it doesn't cater for wheelchairs, sight problems, etc.  Visit their website at:  www.disabledgo.com/ (if you have an iPhone you can also find their App on the App Store - unfortunately those of us with Android phones have to wait for the Android version to come out.

Now - I have a confession to make.  This next company is not a national company or directly (or even specifically) connected with Disabled People.  However, I have taken the liberty of including Castle Park Solicitors as I feel they are a kind, caring, bunch of humans.  Not only that but they are a Not-For-Profit organisation, which means they charge reasonable prices.  (I am looking at goodies on my desk which were handed out by other firms of Solicitors who may be more geared towards dealing with Disabled People, who were present at the same event, but I would go with Castle Park based on their friendliness and caring attitude.)  Website:  www.castleparksolicitors.co.uk/

I would also advise you to find a Not-For-Profit Solicitors in your area - or at least one who puts their Clients before their profits.
