About Livability\r\n\r\nLivability is the disability charity that connects people with their communities. We tackle social isolation and the barriers that can cause this in the lives of disabled and vulnerable people.\r\n\r\nThrough a wide range of disability, education, training and community services, we promote inclusion and wellbeing for all. Together, we work to see people take part, contribute and be valued.\r\n\r\nWe put the elements in place that all add up to connected lives and communities.\r\n\r\nWhat\u2019s the problem?\r\n\r\nRight now, many people in our society are facing barriers that cause them to be socially isolated. Disabled and vulnerable people are often most at risk. From lack of awareness for disability and mental illness, homelessness, unemployment, or lack of education opportunities, the obstacles are obvious.\r\n\r\nSocial isolation is a growing problem in the UK. Britain has been called the \u2018Loneliness capital of Europe\u2019.\r\n\r\nWhy does it matter?\r\n\r\nSocial isolation is seriously bad for your health. When people are socially isolated, their life and wellbeing outcomes are lower.\r\n\r\nBut research shows that when people enjoy good community connections, their health, life outcomes and wellbeing are far stronger.\r\n\r\nWhat is Livability doing about it?\r\n\r\nLivability understands how to make communities work for people. We help people take part, contribute, and be valued.\r\n\r\nThrough a range of disability services, community projects, training and support, we\u2019re working to break down barriers.\r\n\r\nWe create connections between our disability services and community work, to deliver joined-up responses to local care needs and reduce social isolation.\r\n\r\nThe difference your gift will make\r\n\r\nBy including a gift in your Will to Livability, you can help us tackle isolation and connect future generations of disabled and vulnerable people with their community.
