About us

Eight things you should know about Real:

  1. We’re run by disabled people, for disabled people, and have been around in one form or another for over twenty years.
  2. We think disabled people should have the same choices and opportunities in their lives as non-disabled people, so we challenge inequality and discrimination.
  3. We support anyone in Tower Hamlets who is or has been disabled or who has a long-term health condition.
  4. Everything we do is based on the social model of disability.
  5. We support people with any type of impairment or disability, and of all ages, genders, gender identities, ethnicities, religions, beliefs, and sexual orientations.
  6. We also work with friends, families, carers, professionals and allies who support our goals.
  7. We’re formed through a merger of Disability Coalition – Tower Hamlets and Disability Information Training Opportunity, bringing together lots of different skills and experience.
  8. We get most of our funding from Tower Hamlets Council and the local NHS, but we also get help from other organisations, businesses and donors.
