Choices and Rights Disability Coalition(CARDC) are an organisation exclusively run by disabled people in the Hull and East Riding area. We believe that the best experts on the needs of disabled people, are disabled people themselves. As a result, Choices and Rights’ reputation has grown because agencies and organisations know that when they seek consultation with us, they are guaranteed a dialogue with a delegation of disabled people. Originally set-up in 1994, as a small campaigning group with funding of only £150, Choices and Rights have be come the leading organisation of disabled people in the Hull and East Riding area and have a growing regional and national reputation. One of our key roles is to support disabled people and their families to employ Personal Assistants, so they can live independent lives. We also run and manage the Hull and East Riding Centre for Independent Living (CIL), providing information, advice and a range of services for disabled people, their families and service providers.
