What We Do

Our Purpose

The aim of Everyday Enable is to raise the level of knowledge and understanding within the community on access issues relating to daily life and the workplace. We highlight day to day issues for people in our communities living with a disability, raising awareness of the challenges faced, eradicating prejudice, and striving to make improvements to benefit everyone! With our friendly and approachable support, we will help organisations to take a step-by-step approach to create an inclusive environment that works for all. With over 10 years experience of working with people with disabilities and over 40 years of combined lived experience, we are able to offer something quite unique, delivering the hard hitting messages and actions needed, in an honest, friendly, and approachable way.

How Do We Do That?

Educating

We provide Disability Awareness training, highlighting the barriers faced on a daily basis, by those living with a disability. The sessions are a mix of conversation, presentation and fun hands on activities that give a taster of life with a disability.

Supporting

We support local people living with a disability, or caring for someone with a disability, to make positive change to their local area. We do this by offering volunteering opportunities through projects. We firmly believe that people with disabilities are the best people to challenge and act to make improvements, after all we are experts by experience!

Encouraging

We encourage positive action, by speaking to businesses about their needs, and by giving practical solutions, keeping costs to a minimum wherever possible. Did you know you can make your business more accessible for less than £20? Talk to us to find out how!

We provide practical site visits, disability awareness training, advice on access issues, and information on a wide range of reasonable adjustments that can be made. All our services are delivered by people living with disabilities, who can share their personal experiences and practical solutions.

Employers Are Less Likely To Employ Someone With a Disability

Employers have admitted they would be less likely to employ someone with a disability. This could be for many reasons including not understanding disabilities, the misconception of cost involved in making adaptations, or the amount of extra support it is thought someone with a disability might need, it is often thought that employees with a disability will be unreliable. Sometimes all it takes is some very small adjustments, or some flexibility around breaks and spreading hours across more days.

14.1m People in the UK Have a Disability That Is 1 in 5 of Us

There are many different disabilities that affect people in many ways. People with disabilities have good and bad days, meaning their struggles could be different on a daily basis. Due to this many people with disabilities live in fear of judgement if they are having a bad day, because people assume that they must have the same struggles all the time. An example of this is, someone needing to use a wheelchair one day, but managing with crutches or walking sticks the next.  There are also hidden disabilities, this is when some one’s disabilities is not immediately obvious when you meet them, for example learning disabilities, or Mental Health conditions. Hidden disabilities are often misunderstood, as it is not as easy to understand something you can’t see.

People With a Disability Report Having Trouble Accessing Services

Having trouble accessing services is a common issue for people living with disabilities. There are many reasons for this ranging from long waiting lists to not knowing what services that are out there to help. People assume that access issues are physical issues around the space and physically being able to get in and out of a place, but actually there is so much more to this. Imagine an online support group, but you don’t have internet access, or a computer. A phone line when you have no phone or are non-verbal, or even an in person support service that is miles from where you live with no transport to get there. These are just some of the difficulties people face when trying to access services.
