Helping people with disabilities to participate fully in the life and worship of the church

Originally formed to assist disabled children to live their faith, the Catholic Disability Fellowship now aims to help people of all ages.

If you or somebody you know - a friend or family member - has a disability that makes it difficult for them to participate fully in liturgy and/or church activities, then this website is for you. It is also for you if you would like to help people with disabilities to enjoy all the benefits of full participation in the life of the church.

Disabilities might include problems with mobility, vision or hearing; mental illness, autism or dementia; children with learning difficulties who might need extra help with preparation for First Communion and Confirmation.

The list of Aims below explains more fully what the Catholic Disability Fellowship has to offer.
