Buckinghamshire Disability Service (BuDS) is a registered charity, and working community, run by disabled people for disabled people. We focus on fixing the big issues facing all disabled people. We do this by permanently removing barriers facing disabled people and finding answers to the main issues affecting them.
BuDS is open to all disabled people in Bucks whether that is to access a service or help and support our work, or both.
Our priority areas of work include helping disabled people live and travel independently, ensuring disabled people can access local events, supporting disabled people into work, working to improve health and care services, and providing vital information, advice and guidance.
Our priority areas of work include helping people live and travel independently, ensuring disabled people can access local events and supporting disabled people into work and providing benefits advice. We form strategic delivery partnerships with a very wide range of council, NHS, business and voluntary sector bodies to deliver the largest impact.
Our projects include:
Reach4Work: A volunteer employability programme which provides a flexible and inclusive environment for volunteers to improve, lead or create new projects to help disabled people in their community. We actively support volunteers by mentoring and tailoring their role, so they get the skills and experience they need. We also give references and will do
our best to put them in touch with employers.
Accessible Everywhere: Our main accessibility project, looking at improving accessibility and inclusion for disabled people with all impairment types. Parking, streets, parks,
public buildings, transport and shops all fall within the scope of this very busy project. It also includes our Fair4All Events projects. BuDS supported 36 major events across Bucks to become more accessible and inclusive for disabled people, from Armed Forces Day to major music festivals.
