Buckinghamshire Disability Service (BuDS) is a registered charity that focuses on fixing the big issues facing all disabled people. We do this by permanently removing barriers facing disabled people and finding answers to the main issues affecting them.
Our priority areas of work include helping disabled people live and travel independently, ensuring disabled people can access local events, supporting disabled people into work, working to improve health and care services, and providing vital information, advice and guidance. We are a very diverse inclusive organisation made up almost entirely of disabled volunteers, with all impairment groups represented and a strong focus on mutual peer support.
During the Covid-19 pandemic BuDS has established 15 new projects including the BuDS Buddies befriending service, a C-19 information and guidance service, the Fair4All Card, and a series of Insight polls.
