What's the site all about?
Its a directory of
disability groups, (charities and voluntary organisations),
services and companies that offer advice, support, services or
equipment particularly suited to disabled people.
The directory covers the whole of the
UK and is designed to be as inclusive of as many disabilities and
areas of interest as possible.
Along with the directory are included
some basic fact sheets about disability, a news blog.
We are not trying to compete
with other already valuable websites, merely bring them together to
make them easier to find for those people who need them most.

FAQ's about the directory
Problems with the code
visitors have reported a problem with using the code
boxes that are sometimes required, particularly at the
bottom of forms. All the codes can be entered
using lowercase letters only, regardless of the case of
the characters presented. And its not always easy to differentiate between
lowercase j and i so please bear that it mind when entering the letters.

The Disability Direct site and its directory

product or service is not related to disability, or is not
of obvious benefit to people with a disability then its
probably not for you.
of whether you have free inclusion in the directory (a
Charity URL) or a
Premium URL listing, inclusion in the directory is entirely
at the discretion of the site and its owners. If you
have applied to be included in the directory and your
request has been rejected you will normally receive an
explanation from a human being to tell you the reason.
In some cases you may be offered suggestions about how you
may modify your wording to make your application acceptable.
If you have paid for a Premium listing
and it is rejected and you do not wish to modify your
wording or you are just not given the opportunity, your
payment will be returned to you in full within 28
If your product or service is judged
to provide a poor service to people with a disability, even
after your inclusion on the directory, Disability Direct (uhad2bthere) reserves
the right to either not include your listing or remove your
listing from the directory. If following inclusion
your listing is removed within 28 days of your application,
then any payment you have made will be refunded to you, less

Is Disability Direct for profit?
|No, is the brief answer ...
However, we do encourage commercial organisations to
sign up for paid listings using the Premium URL system in order to help
cover the cost of maintaining the site and to recover some of the
original start up costs.
We do also receive small payments from Google and
Amazon whenever the links on the left hand side of the page are clicked
... So if you are going to buy stuff from Amazon why not do it through
one of our links? The final price to you is the same, but we
About, Keep Calm and Carry On
|Keep Calm and Carry On is very apt, don't you
think, for most people living with a disability?
And that's why we have a link - just because we like
the idea. Disabilitydirect.org is not receiving any sort of
commission or payment through this link. And apart from the fact that we
wish we had thought of it ourselves, have no connection with the site.
Though if you are feeling cheeky, its always worth
contacting the owner to offer some praise and perhaps ask for a
discount, but that's up to you.
Disability Direct or uhad2bthere? About the name
|uhad2bthere has changed its name to
for a couple of reasons. The main one of course is because while
uhad2bthere is a great Google keyword no one knows what it really means!
But apart from the change in name very little of the
great stuff that uhad2bthere is known for has not changed that much.
If you have a link on the directory that remains
the same - and indeed if you link to the old domain name from your
own site that link will still work, though if you have linked using the
html code we provided you should have noticed that the images have been
updated. Though its not essential, if you would like to update the
link on your site please go to the
linking section on
the admin page.
Similarly although the
site has a new email address,
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an old uhad2bthere address in
your contacts that will still work, though again, if you get the chance
to update to the new email address that would be appreciated.
If none of this makes sense and you need to ask
something please email us on our new email address.
