In this article, you will find public helplines for persons with disabilities.

The lockdown due to Covid-19 has impacted and changed our lives in the way we operate. All of us are restricted to staying home over the past few weeks. We at Nayi Disha Resource Centre have shared through our social media platforms, a lot of activities, videos and schedules to help you keep your kids busy at home. Do start a conversation with parent peers in your community to understand and learn of ways in which others are coping in the current climate.

However, on certain occasions, you may seek professional help in the form of counselling, grievance reporting or support from government authorities on specific challenges you may face.

Nayi Disha Resource Centre has compiled a nationwide list of helplines that you may reach out to in your hour of need. Some of these helplines cater to the general public at large while some remain specific to services dedicated to helping persons with disabilities.
