- Passionate about the rights of disabled people
- Keen to disable barriers to independence
- Has personal experience of disability
- Flexible and able to attend monthly meetings via Teams
We would particularly like to attract trustees with financial or legal experience.

About Equal Lives
We believe in supporting people to empower themselves to live independent lives. We do this through valuable services including Information & Advice, Advocacy, Shopmobility and Campaigning.
Our mission for disabled people’s independence is why we work to the Social Model of Disability. Developed by disabled people, this model is a progressive way of viewing the world and says that individuals are limited by barriers within society and not by their own impairments or differences. Our aim is to breakdown these disabling barriers and work with people to achieve the life they choose.
