Let's find a solution together, for a better tomorrow.


Disability Solutions West Midlands (DSWM) is a Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation (DPULO) which is run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, many of who are volunteers. Disability Solutions was formed in 1998 from the merger of three disability groups in North Staffordshire – Disability Advice Line (DIAL), Equal Voices and the Independent Living Centre. We are a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

Our organisation enables people who are affected by disability to fully participate and integrate in all aspects of modern society through the provision of accessible, quality assured client led services that meet the needs of people with a disability or long term, life limiting health condition.

We fully support the social model of disability, which reflects society’s inability or unwillingness to take account of an individual’s impairment, which may lead to them being disadvantaged, restricted or excluded from full participation in mainstream roles and activities. The impairment could be physical, learning, sensory, behavioural and mental or any combination of these.

With over 30 years of dedicated experience Disability Solutions West Midlands supports people with disabilities by providing: Welfare Benefit Advice, Information, Personal Health Budgets, Volunteering, Training, Activities and so much more… Making us the leading pan disability organisation in Staffordshire.
