DIAL LEEDS is introducing a new service (Disability Digital Enquiry Subscriptions) that aims to provide a holistic user led one off enquiry facility.
Using our specialist knowledge, direct lived experience and professional skills going back over 30 years and our extensive unique disability database – DIALBase – we may be able to help.
Do you need an answer to an enquiry such as?
- How do I get a particular service or type of support….
- How do I get funding for….
- Where can I find….
- What accessible holidays/hotels are there for me?
Then this facility could help you.
How does it work?
If you have a one off enquiry you can ask the question via email, messenger (on facebook) direct message via Twitter or via the webform on our website.
We will attempt to answer your question within 3 working days (*this depends upon the complexity of the query) with the option of a follow up postal answer (such as an information sheet).
How much does it cost?
The first enquiry is Free! This is for a limited time only as we perfect the system.
All subsequent enquiries will be priced as follows:
|Plan:||Individual Price||Organisation Price|
|One of enquiries (cost per enquiry – Pay as You go)||£1.00||£1.50|
|Standard Annual Fee (up to 15 enquiries for 12 months)||£10.00||£15.00|
|Enhanced Annual Fee (unlimited enquiries for 12 months)||£20.00||£30.00|
In order to carry out this service you are agreeing to DIAL LEEDS holding your information on a secure database. This enables us to keep a track of who has paid and what their entitlements to enquiries are.
