Equal Lives

A user led organisation, formerly known as Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People (NCODP). We unite people of all ages who face disabling barriers to get our voices heard and change things for the better. We provide disabled people with advice and support in areas such as direct payments, benefits, advocacy, housing and access. We aim to help disabled people live a more independent life.

The following information provides you with information and advice on benefits, advocacy, and living your living your life independently. If you need specialised advocacy support please contact us. We have produced a leaflet called Information, Advice and Advocacy Services which you can download from our website.

Our office hours are 8:30 to 4:30. Please note that we do not have a drop-in service at our office in Framingham Pigot. We run information and advice sessions around Norfolk. Please call our office on 01508 491210 to make an appointment.
