Service description:
Welcome to DIAL UK, a national organisation for a network of approximately 120 local Disability Information and Advice Line services (DIALs) run by and for disabled people. Last year DIALs helped over a quarter of a million disabled people.

DIAL information and advice services are based throughout the UK and provide information and advice to disabled people and others on all aspects of living with a disability. All DIAL services are currently working to meet strict new quality standards.

Information and advice are usually available on:
- welfare benefits
- community care
- equipment
- independent living
- mobility and transport
- discrimination
- holidays
and much more . . .

Many local DIAL centres rely on a team of trained volunteers to provide high quality information and advice. The majority of the volunteers and the paid staff in DIALs are disabled people themselves and therefore understand the needs of disabled people.

DIAL UK provides local disability information and advice services with support and a range of cost effective services including:
- a disability information database and monthly information service
- support for welfare rights advisers
- management support
- training
