Assist UK 

Assist UK leads a UK wide network of locally-situated Disabled Living Centres.

Most centres include a permanent exhibition of products and equipment that provide people with opportunities to see and try products and equipment and get information and advice from professional staff about what might suit them best.

There are over 325 advisors throughout the network who respond to an average ¼ million enquiries made each year.

Disabled Living Centres also provide a valuable source of information relating to access, design and equipment for daily living. This can be especially useful to carers, older people and healthcare workers, students and manufacturers.

You can find a list of local [Disability Living Centres](http://www.assist-uk.org/index.php/centre-details) through this site.
