What Does Access, Equality and Independence Mean to You?
At CILPK we promote a barrier free, inclusive and equality minded environment for all disabled people, one that promotes independence and is based on dignity, choice and control.
Our organisation is run by disabled people for disabled people and we offer a range of services designed to ensure better access, greater equality of experience and meaningful improvements in our right to live independently with support where appropriate.
If you would like a chance to shape the environment and services across Perth and Kinross that affect you, whether you be physically disabled, learning disabled, have a sensory impairment (such as sight or hearing loss) or are experiencing mental ill health, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
We are also open to non disabled people who have a genuine interest in the aims of the Centre and the work that it does.
Living with a Disability For a Day
Staff at CILPK along with one of the Chairman’s PA’s will be raising money for CILPK by living with a disability for a day on 12th March at the Disabled Access Day.
You will be able to follow their progress through the day with updates on facebook and twitter.
Euan’s Guide Challenge

All you have to do is tell us your experience at 12 different venues, this could include cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, anywhere that you visit. This information will then go on the Euan’s guide website and other disabled people can see this information and make an informed choice as to where they visit.
