Birmingham Disability Resource Centre

Birmingham Disability Resource Centre (also known as Disability Resource Centre, or DRC) is an organisation run by disabled people, for disabled people. As the only pan-disability charity in Birmingham, we support over 6,000 beneficiaries each year to take control of their own lives and achieve their full potential. With over 25 years of experience, we offer a range of services to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions, including:

- Personal skills development – including personal safety and protection courses, IT classes, counselling, mentoring and stress management.

- Information and advice – including the delivery of a Birmingham city-wide Independent Living Service providing information, advice and advocacy to over 2200 people each year, supporting them to make informed choices and exercise their rights to live independently.

- Health and wellbeing activities – to promote healthy lifestyle choices and to enable people to better manage their health impairment.
Social, leisure and sporting activities – including weekly coffee mornings, walking groups and arts and crafts classes to help reduce social isolation.

- Employment, training, volunteering and apprenticeships to support people towards economic participation and sustainable employment

Our warm and friendly staff, many who have disabilities themselves, provide a unique, holistic approach, empowering disabled people in Birmingham to live independent and fulfilling lives.
