The Centre for independent Living (CIL) is a collection of key services for disabled people..

Choices and Rights is an organisation for disabled people in the Kingston upon Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire area. We are 100% run and controlled by disabled people. We believe that the best experts on the needs of disabled people are disabled people themselves and as a result, Choices and Rights membership and reputation has grown because agencies and organisations know that when they seek consultation with us they will have dialogue with a delegation of disabled people. 

Our main aims are:.

    • To promote the independence and inclusion of all disabled people in society
    • To Identify and pro-actively challenge the discrimination faced by disabled people
    • To encourage disabled people to work together to achieve change locally
