General Details

The Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People is an inclusive umbrella organisation, led by disabled people, for disabled people and their member groups. Suffolk Coalition aims to become a central point of contact for all user-led organisations in Suffolk, no matter what their size, which help and support those with any disability, impairment or long term health issues as identified by the terms of the Disability Discrimination Act.

What we do
Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People is a human rights organisation supporting all disabled people and groups in Suffolk.

  • We were formed in 2010 with an initial mandate, achieving charity status in 2012 - see our timeline for full details
  • We follow the social model of disability
  • We are led by a Board of Trustees, all of whom are disabled, and we employ a member of staff based at their office in Ipswich
    Many Voices, Better Choices

We work according to the principles laid out in our mission statement:

Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People is an independent, not-for-profit campaigning organisation that unites disabled people and their groups to remove barriers that prevent people from leading their own lives.

Strategic Aims

We will build an independent organisation that is well governed and financially sound. We will become the ‘go to’ organisation for disabled people and stakeholders in Suffolk. More details of our strategic aims.
