Ideal for All is a not for profit company and registered charity run by disabled people for disabled people in Sandwell. We provide a range of social and health care services for disabled people, carers and disadvantaged groups. Our aim is to help the people using our services to learn new skills and live as independently as possible.
Our range of services promote independent living, health and wellbeing and we bring people together through our social events for members and local people. We have been recognised as a leader in our area of work and have won numerous awards for the charity and services we provide.
We have also set up Ideal For All Enterprises, a social enterprise venture, incorporating training, payroll and design & media services. All profits made through the social enterprise are invested back into the charity.
