Advice on equipment, aids and adaptations

Disability North provide free advice and support on all aspects of independent living.

We can also advise on how to get grants towards equipment and where you can get equipment from.  All of our advice is free and unbiased.  You can book an appointment to come along to try a piece of equipment to ensure it suits your individual needs, before you purchase anything from a supplier.

Disability North also coordinate a second-hand for people looking to sell or buy equipment, click here to take a look!
