Real Disabled People's Organisation

Welcome to Real

Coronavirus service update, 24-03-2020: Real is running a reduced service due to covid-19 (coronavirus) and the government's instruction to limit contact between people. We are still providing support by phone and email but are unable to offer face-to-face meetings. We are doing the best we can to support people through this difficult time, but response times may be delayed. Thank you for your understanding.

Everything we do is about giving disabled people real choices.

We’ve been helping disabled and non-disabled people in Tower Hamlets work together to share information, provide support and make change happen for over twenty years.

Eight things you should know about Real:

  1. We’re run by disabled people, for disabled people, and have been around in one form or another for over twenty years.
  2. We think disabled people should have the same choices and opportunities in their lives as non-disabled people, so we challenge inequality and discrimination.
  3. We support anyone in Tower Hamlets who is or has been disabled or who has a long-term health condition.
  4. Everything we do is based on the social model of disability.
  5. We support people with any type of impairment or disability, and of all ages, genders, gender identities, ethnicities, religions, beliefs, and sexual orientations.
  6. We also work with friends, families, carers, professionals and allies who support our goals.
  7. We’re formed through a merger of Disability Coalition – Tower Hamlets and Disability Information Training Opportunity, bringing together lots of different skills and experience.
  8. We get most of our funding from Tower Hamlets Council and the local NHS, but we also get help from other organisations, businesses and donors.

Real is a registered charity (1061671) and company limited by guarantee (3213172).
