PULSE NGO Partners
The Legal Clinic for the Disabled (LCD) is a non-profit organisation based in Philadelphia, USA, and provides free legal services to low-income people with physical, as well as deaf or hard-of-hearing, disabilities. They aim to help clients overcome legal problems and maintain a safe and independent life in their community. They train a range of people including: doctors, nurses, social workers and health care workers, to identify determinants on health that are legal in nature.
Leonard Cheshire Disability supports thousands of disabled people both in the UK and in more than 50 other countries. They help people with physical impairments, learning difficulties and long-term health conditions, as well as their carers, friends and families. By providing services and helping everyone to understand disability and combat discrimination, they aim to remove the barriers that can stop people with disabilities from pursuing their goals and living their lives to the full.
