The other partners are Ealing Centre for Independent Living and the Horn of Africa Disability & Elderly Association.. Both Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group.and Ealing Council support the consortium.

Ealing Southall MP Virendra Sharma attended the launch and said “Ealing Disability Unite will help people who have a broad range of disabilities but I am also pleased that between them, the three partners will meet the needs of the diverse people living in the borough including established communities and some of the newer emerging communities too.”
