Who we are

ECIL is a membership organisation representing and supporting disabled people who live and work in Ealing. It was formed as a charitable organisation in 2002. Most of our funding comes from the Ealing Community Partnership West London NHS.

We are run by disabled people for disabled people: over 75% of our Board are disabled. We have 2 part- time advice workers, we are a small charity based at the lido centre in West Ealing. If you are disabled or an unpaid carer for a relative or friend we can help you access the resources that can make your life easier. We are currently part of the Ealing Community Partners Out of Hospitals Project.

What we believe in

We believe there should be ‘nothing about us, without us’ - disabled people should be in control of their own lives, organisations and choices.

Our work is based on the following core values and principles:

  • We support the Social Model of Disability philosophies at our core.
  • We champion inclusion and equality of opportunity all.
  • We believe disabled people should be enabled to reach their full potential and achieve independence.
  • Campaign to make sure disabled people’s voices are heard.
  • Challenge attitudes and perceptions to create an inclusive society, free of discrimination.
  • Work in partnership.
