A FREE guide to services on offer for disabled people in Worcestershire is to be published thanks to a generous donation from a community fund.
Disability Information Advice Line (DIAL) South Worcestershire has been given a £1,200 grant by the Co-operative Community Fund.
The cash will be used to publish a Guide to Services, which will contain information on organisations offering support to disabled people.
A DIAL spokesman said the guide, which will be published in September, would be ideal for people who do not or can not use the internet.
"We are so grateful to the community fund committee of the Co-operative Society," she said.
"Disabled people need help more than ever to get information on all the changes that are going on and the grant of £1,200 will ensure they have access to up to date information on local organisations that can help them."
