Kingston Centre for Independent Living
KCIL is a user led organisation which has been supporting disabled people to live as independently as they choose in the Royal Borough of Kingston for over 45 years. We believe that disabled people should have choice and controlover the services they receive and the lives that they lead. Current services include information and advice, personal budget and direct payments support, support planning and brokerage, holiday grants and Independent Support to children with disabilities and their families.
What’s our role as a Strategic Lead Partner for Disabled People?
