Geographical remit: 


DIAL Solihull provides information, advice and advocacy for disabled adults, children and their carers. Our services are free, impartial and confidential and can be accessed by adults and families who live in Solihull. Since 1987 we have worked for disabled people to have more choice and control, feel more connected with their local community and be less isolated.


Advice and information

We provide all kinds of support and assistance on every-day practicalities to more complex issues. We advise on benefits, blue badges, disabled parking spaces, disabled facilities grants, local support groups, wills and trusts for disabled people, concessionary travel passes, aids and adaptations, social care assessments, short term equipment loan, and grants and trusts for disabled people.


We help people to get their voice heard, supporting them to understand and be involved in assessments, planning and decisions about their future needs and care packages.


We also advise people with disabilities and long-term conditions on finding and retaining paid employment and self-employment. For those people who are not ‘work ready’ we can support them to take steps towards employment through volunteering, education or training. We also work with employers to help them consider reasonable adjustments for employees who need extra support. We are proud to support over 1,700 people each year to live more independent and active lives.
