Help Save Redbridge Disability Association sign now

We the undersigned petition the London Borough of Redbridge to rescind its decision to stop funding Redbridge Disability Association's information advice and advocacy service.

Redbridge Disability Association is a front line disabled person led non profit organisation with 42 years experience. Disability creates massive challenges - we want to solve real issues together.

The London Borough of Redbridge has decided to stop funding us and have not actually said why. We are at risk of closing but last year brought 500,000 into the Borough and have been rated as excellent by the Legal Services Commission.
