We are
Disability Positive

The new name for Cheshire Centre for Independent Living.

We provide services, opportunities and a voice to people living with disability and long-term health conditions, and their families

We can offer advice, help with practical tasks and advocate for people in lots of situations. We listen and share people’s experiences to influence positive change in government policy. We know it matters, because we live with disability and long-term health conditions too.
