This Christmas, grow connections that count

Together with disabled people, we work to provide care, tackle isolation and grow connections that make life more livable.

What does it 'all adds up' mean? 

A livable life is the sum of many things. From friendship, to fun; from companionship to wider community; from a great chat to a challenge overcome. 

Together and with disabled people, we work to provide care, tackle isolation and grow community connections that make life more livable for the people we support.

Livability is the disability charity that connects people with their community.


We believe that a livable life is the sum of many things. From friendship, to fun; from companionship to wider community; from a great chat to a challenge overcome. It all adds up - to Livability.’
