The Coalition of Disabled People of South Devon - also known as Disability Support Torbay - provides a number of vital services to those with a variety of health and mental health issues across Torbay. Employing people with direct experience of disability health issues, whether that be mental health, physical and sensory disabilities, or carers, Disability Support Torbay aims to use their direct experience to make a positive difference to the quality of life of those with disabilities, health and mental health issues.

The award of £1000 has been donated to ensure that Disability Support Torbay is able to continue providing their valuable services, including assistance with benefit forms; housing issues; debt management; counselling, and more. The office on Lymington Road, Torquay, is open from 10am to 4pm Monday-Thursday to all those in need - whether that be for any of the services above; to use a computer; or even just to pop in for a cup of coffee.
