Still Human UK

Still Human UK is a charity which offers information, support and advice to disabled people in the UK, regardless of their disability. Still Human UK evolved as a result of many people contacting our founder regarding their various, often dire and distressing situations and having nowhere else to turn. Within the last 3 months we have thankfully managed to help 90 clients to successful completion of their cases, yet sadly, we have hundreds more waiting with many now needing legal intervention.
