The Hub Redhill is a drop-in first stop shop for information, advice, advocacy and other services, which is run by disabled people for disabled people and carers. It opened in early May 2011 at 41 High Street, Redhill, RH1 1RX, but is also accessible via website, e-mail, telephone and textphone.

It provides a great opportunity for disabled people and carers to not only improve access to the information and support they need, but also to provide these services directly.

As well as information and advice, the Hub also displays and sells equipment for disabled people. People can buy small items on the spot or order larger items with the help of a volunteer.
