Livability is the disability charity that connects people with their communities. We exist to support disabled people to live a life that adds up for them. Our vision is of a barrier-free society where all people can flourish and enjoy full participation.
Livability, through our three core services in the North East (Hexham, Prudhoe and Gateshead/Newcastle), provides residential support and independent living services for physically or intellectually disabled people. We are committed to creating caring communities that promote inclusion and wellbeing for the people we support.
We are not satisfied with a world where disabled people face barriers to the life they wish to live. Right now, barriers continue to be present: to employment; to learning; to having safe places to live, to receiving appropriate care and support; to being able to access the world around us; to having opportunities to contribute and participate; to being highly valued. This needs to change.
