About Equality Together

Discover more about Equality Together and meet the people behind the services.

Equality Together is a local user-led organisation for disabled people, their carers and families. Our services are currently available to people who live in the Bradford Metropolitan District. Discover more about our aims as an organisation, what it’s truly like to understand disabilities and say hello to the wonderful team how make Equality Together tick.

Our Aim

To inspire and support people who face disabling barriers: to challenge and overcome these barriers and to live independent and active lives.

Understanding Disability

What is the difference between a physical and social model? We’ll explain our understanding of disability.

Donations

Equality Together is a UK registered charity that is heavily reliant on external funding and generous donations. See how you could help.

Volunteer Opportunities

Some Volunteer opportunities are short-term, perhaps providing experience to someone wanting to return to work after a period of absence. Others may suit someone retired or unable to work but who still feel they have skills to share.

I was looking for a way to get back into administration after a long period away from work and I found volunteering at Equality Together gave me much needed experience but also a sense of achievement working for such a giving organisation. I’m still here after 12 years.
