Disabled people face many barriers within society and information provision is one way of enabling disabled people to tackle these barriers.

With the introduction of self-directed support and other changes to disability benefits, Grapevine is your first point of call for information and advice which is tailored to meet your specific needs. We recognise every individual is different and will require information and advice in a format which is accessible. Find out how we can support you on by visiting our How we Provide Support page.
