Blackpool is blazing the trail for national best practice in disability-led projects.

Stephen Brookes, Bispham-based Ambassador for Disability Rights UK, says:

"In spite of some negative national messages, the achievements of disabled people and their organisations is having a real impact on the community. Welfare reform and benefit cuts are causing some real fears but balanced against that, the community is seeing real gains from the mass of voluntary work and involvement successfully undertaken by disabled people across Blackpool."
