from The Big Lottery to purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle,
the CILK mobile service is already burning up the miles.
CILK's mobile service covesr all areas in Kent including Dartford and the Medway Towns
and provides advocacy, peer support and information covering all aspects
of independent living.
The mobile manager Marian Khamo
will assist those wishing to become direct payment users as well as
those who are already receiving direct payments. We have
information on services, equipment and much, much more so that you can
make an informed decision about living independently, finding support
providers and paying for your own support and assistance requirements.
The innovative CILK
mobile service delivers these enabling services direct to dsabled people across the County regardless of age, impairment or ethic origin;
it encourages and empowers all disabled people to take control of
their lives by making use of the services/support they need.
CILK initially received
funding from KCC, the European Year of Disabled People and other sources
and has continued to work very hard to successfully secure further funding
to continue its valuable work of providing enabling, independent living
services direct to disabled people.
In February 2006
CILK was awarded funding from the Big Lottery; this money has enabled
CILK to fund the first mobile centre for independent living in the Country
and the salary to pay for a manger.
CILK is a registered
Charity, a Company limited by guarantee and an independent Organisation
run, controlled and managed by disabled people whose guiding ethos is
the Social Model of Disability, the 12 basic requirements for independent
living as identified by disabled people and equality and diversity.
If you would like
