An independent charity who provide support for disabled people and people with impairments or long term health conditions across East and West Sussex has rebranded to better reflect its staff, services and the people it assists.
After 35 years, local charity, The Fed Centre for Independent Living, has changed its name to Possability People from Thursday 9 June 2016 onwards.
The charity’s Chief Executive, Geraldine Des Moulins, says: “I first got involved with the organisation in 1985 and have been involved off and on until I became CEO about 9 years ago. Like all organisations, we’ve had our ups and downs, but we are now embarking on an exciting new stage of the organisation’s journey.”
Possability People’s services include:
- help organising care so you can be independent
- expert advice (including money or welfare benefits advice or advice about direct payments)
- employment support
- an accessible venue
- Shopmobility scooter and wheelchair hire
- support to help you manage aches and pain
Geraldine added: “When we first started talking about a new name, we got a strong message from our stakeholders to keep doing what we are doing. And that is our intention. This is an incredibly important moment for us. This is about our future sustainability in uncertain times. The new name reflects our commitment to supporting disabled and vulnerable people; it also reflects the great work our staff and volunteers do to make things possible for our community.”
