Knowsley Disability Concern has been supporting local people who face challenges by reason of their disability for more than 40 years.
Originally established in 1977 as a service for adults with learning disabilities, KDC has developed and evolved into a modern, forward-thinking organisation specialising in delivering services to support local people to live independent lives in the community.
Our Vision is to see communities where all people are included, live independently and are valued as equal citizens
Our Mission is to provide support and services that enable people to have choice, control and independence
Our Values describe “the way we do things around here”
Formed as a Charity in March 1983 (no. 1103477) and later incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in December 2003 (no. 5002948), KDC is regulated by HM Revenue and Customs for the purposes of providing financial management and payroll services. Our information and advice standards are quality assured by the Community Legal Services Commission.
We work closely with Knowsley Social Services as well as the local Primary Care Trusts and sit on the strategic partnership boards. KDC supports the Knowsley User Led Organisation .
KDC is governed by a Board of Trustees which takes responsibility for the overall direction of the charity – setting objectives and overseeing performance. The Board of Trustees has towo committees which have special responsibility for the specific areas of personnel and finance.
Our staff team is made up of a number of experienced and highly skilled people who work to an agreed set of standards and have a common set of values.
