Services supporting disabled people

We manage the highly successful Disability Design Reference Group (DDRG) on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).

Our popular Pathways courses are running now! Gain skills with Digital Inclusion, Pathways2Work, Independent Living and Pre-Employability with our weekly sessions. You’re guaranteed to learn new things and have fun along the way, and get on the path to bigger things.

Running through the heart of Breakthrough is peer support – the idea that people with lived experience are the best people to give support to one another.

If you are an employer or are running your own business, we can design and deliver bespoke training modules and consultancy services to meet the specific needs and requirements of any business.

We’re a Third Party Hate Crime Reporting Centre. This means we act as an alternative establishment to the police where incidents can be reported in safety and confidence.

We provide person-centred support for disabled people. This means we focus on the goals and barriers which each individual client identifies for themselves.

We support disabled people in Manchester to find and participate in activities in their local community. We can support you if you live in Manchester and consider yourself to be a disabled person.

If you receive either type of Personal Budget, or employ your own Personal Assistant, we have a range of services to take the stress out of organising your finances. Our services are designed by disabled people, for disabled people.

Are you an organisation who could get involved in supporting us with some time and skills?

We are a user led organisation – run and controlled by disabled people. The work that we do has a strong and positive impact, on the lives of Breakthrough clients, and on the employers we work with every day.
