Knowsley Disability Concern has been supporting local people who face challenges by reason of their disability for more than 30 years.

Originally established in 1977 as a service for adults with learning disabilities, KDC has developed and evolved into a modern, forward-thinking organisation specialising in delivering services to support local people to live independent lives in the community.

Our Vision is to see communities where all people are included, live independently and are valued as equal citizens

Our Mission is to provide high quality, innovative services that support disabled people to exercise their rights, have choice, control and achieve independence.
