Parity for Disability
A local charity with widespread impact.
When people with multiple disabilities finish school, the future can seem bleak. Many face decline from limited activity and contact with others. Our services open up a world of opportunities.
“How can you go from school, from having all these things, to suddenly…nothing?” – Parent
That’s the difficult reality for many young people with multiple disabilities and for families who deal with 24/7 care responsibilities. It’s why parents and professionals started Parity’s services in 1991.
Parity’s staff are trained and our services equipped so students can shape activities, build friendships and relationships, expand their horizons, contribute to their community – in fact, do what everyone else is doing.
We adapt to meet the students’ evolving needs by linking up with partners, organisations, councillors, MPs, decision makers and health and social care teams.
Using Parity for Disability’s three day services in Farnborough, Hampshire and in Camberley and Mytchett, Surrey, people with multiple disabilities aged 18+ access the specialist staff, flexible transport, approaches and equipment they need to engage in chosen activities, build friendships and networks, use and develop skills, contribute to their community – in fact, do what everyone else is doing. Parity also runs a Music Therapy Service that operates both on-site and in homes, schools and other settings.
