Two people representing Equal Lives are sat at a desk smiling and clutching coffee cups. There are flyers on the desk that say 'Volunteering' and 'What we do'.

Welcome to Equal Lives

About Equal Lives

We are Equal Lives. A disability rights organisation based in Norfolk and Suffolk. We exist to support people of any age who face disabling barriers and we are dedicated to making their voices heard. We are a user led organisation (ULO), meaning we are led by people who access care and support services themselves - with a strong majority of our board identifying as disabled.  

We believe in supporting people to empower themselves to live independent lives. We do this through valuable services including Information & Advice, Advocacy, Shopmobility and Campaigning. 

 

Our mission for disabled people’s independence is why we work to the Social Model of Disability. Developed by disabled people, this model is a progressive way of viewing the world and says that individuals are limited by barriers within society and not by their own impairments or differences. Our aim is to breakdown these disabling barriers and work with people to achieve the life they choose.

Against a pale green background are three cartoon people. Two have visible signs of disability (a wheelchair and crutches) and are facing the other person, who is stood up. All three are smiling.
