Services for Adults with Disabilities
Anyone may become disabled – suddenly through accident, or gradually through illness, and some people are disabled from birth.
Whatever a person’s disability, there are a range of different support options available that can help a person to maintain their independence. Derbyshire County Council can help you to identify what support needs you have and how best to meet these.
