Ealing Centre for Independent Living (ECIL) Information and Advice Pan Disability


ECIL is a membership organisation representing and supporting disabled people and carers, of all types and of any age, who live and work in the borough of Ealing and surrounding boroughs. We are proud to be part of the Independent Living movement and are one of a growing number of Centres for Independent Living (CILs) around the country. The government strategy paper Improving the Life Chances of Disabled People published in 2005 recommends that there should be a CIL in every local authority area. ECIL was formed as an independent organisation in 2002. We gained our charitable status in that year.

Our main activities are;

  • Providing advice and information
  • Providing advocacy (this means supporting people to access their rights and entitlements)
  • Organising social events, courses and activities
  • Campaigning
  • Working with other disability organisations through Disability Connect (the disability network in Ealing) and national organisations including the National Centre for Independent Living.
  • Joint working with Ealing Council and Clinical Commissioning Group for example, the Long Term and Older Peoples Partnership Board, the Carers Partnership Board, the Learning Disabilities Partnership Board and the Mental Health Partnership Board.
