Who we work with

Livability is an enabling network, working to tackle barriers in society and make community livable. We believe that everyone has a valuable role to play in the community. We’re here to help it happen.

Through our disability services, education and vocational support, brain rehabilitation centre, church and community engagement work, or international consultancy, Livability supports up to 1,000 people every day.

We are proud to work with a wide range of service users, community partners, commissioners, associates, volunteers and donors.

Our service users

Many of our service users are disabled people, but we also work with a broader range of people through a wide and strong network of Link churches and partnerships.

Donors, Trusts, Foundations

Livability is pleased to enjoy the support and backing of a wide range of donors, trusts, foundations and corporate partners including: Howdens, Olympus KeyMed, The Big Lottery and the Hobson Charity.


With a staff base of 1600, Livability employs people all over the country whose commitment gives our service users the best possible support.

Friends Groups

Livability Friends Groups support Livability services in their local communities who raised an impressive £62,000 for local services last year.

Livability Link Churches

One of the ways in which Livability works to connect communities and work for change is through a network of Link Churches across London. As a major sponsor and community partner, Livability provides community engagement expertise, accommodation and building space to help these Link Churches be good news within their communities.

Livability Church Partners

Livability works with a range of churches in the UK, supporting and resourcing them to meet the needs of local people. We celebrate the assets already found in a community, and build creative partnerships that bring communities together. We also work to train churches on disability and accessibility awareness.
