CHOICE IN HACKNEY is a voluntary organisation, which provides Advocacy and Independent Living Services to disabled people in London.
We support disabled people from all communities to obtain the services they need to live independently, with dignity and to make choices about their lifestyles.
CHOICE IN HACKNEY is a Disabled People User Led Organisation, which means we're run by disabled people, for disabled people.
We are committed to empowering disabled people by working to the social model of disability.
The majority of the members of the Board of Trustees are disabled people who themselves are users of our services.
