Possability People is the new name for The Fed Centre for Independent Living (The Fed). We are a charity which was set up in 1981 to support and involve disabled people to have equal rights, and a voice and control over issues affecting their lives.

Since our early days, we have grown into a strong, optimistic organisation providing a range of quality assured services to help all kinds of people achieve their goals.

We love the simplicity of our new name and think it is a much better description of what we do, our personality and our ethos. With the right information and support, we think anything is possible, regardless of ability.
We are skilled at feeding back constructively to people who make decisions. Our reputation is such that we have influenced policy and practice at local, regional and national levels.

Some of our services are provided by funding from local and national government. However, much of what we do we fund ourselves, either by our own fundraising efforts and public donations, or by income generated through services we provide. We are very proud this income is reinvested in Possability People. It means more of society’s most marginalised and disadvantaged people can access information and services to help improve their health and well-being.
