Dumfries and Galloway Integrated Service (Physical Disability Service)

The service works with individuals and groups throughout Dumfries and Galloway to facilitate employment, education, training, volunteering and leisure opportunities for people within their own communities.

Who is it for?

Adults between the ages of 16 and 64 who have a physical disability

What we can provide?

Services include:

  • Specialist advice, information, assessment and facilitation
  • One to one and group facilitation to enable physically disabled people to identify and work towards personal goals to enhance and improve social inclusion
  • Working with people with physical disabilities in identifying existing opportunities in their local communities such as employment, education, training, volunteer opportunities and leisure
  • Maintain a database to signpost users on to other specialist resources, such as information on educational courses, available locally
  • Working with a range of other agencies and individuals to develop activities in relation to individual aspirations, for example finding or changing employment
  • Using a multi-agency approach with, for example, Dumfries and Galloway Council and NHS Dumfries and Galloway, to deliver appropriate support

The service does not provide personal care on a regular or planned basis.  People can be referred to the service by other agencies, or they can self refer.
