Tell us a little about the work (or activity) that you do?
Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living is a Disabled People’s Organisation operating across Edinburgh and Lothians. LCiL was created as a result of the Independent Living Movement, which is founded on the principle of all disabled people having the same freedom, choice, dignity and control as other citizens at home, at work, and in the community.
LCiL offers several services including the Independent Living Service, the Grapevine Disability Information Service, Payroll Processing, Peer Support & Learning, and Self-Management. LCiL is always on hand to provide comprehensive support and advice to disabled people, those with long term conditions, parent carers and older people.
Why is Norton Park such a good place for you to be based?
Norton Park offers LCiL the perfect blend of convenience, accessibility and quality of service which makes it the ideal location to base our services. It offers modern facilities for our staff with the adjoining Norton Park Conference Centre conveniently located to allow for accessible event hosting. Likewise, the spacious offices are ideally located near the centre of Edinburgh with good public transport links. The staff always help our teams resolve any issues they have, epitomising the philosophy of going the extra mile to help our teams resolve any rare issues, allowing us to focus on delivering our services for the service users we support.
What sentence best sums up Norton Park?
An accessible, modern and supportive community of like minded third sector organisations supported by a team of dedicated and helpful staff.
