What is Phab?

Leamington & Warwick PHAB PROGRAMME 2016

“Phab” stands for PHysically Disabled & ABle Bodied.

  • It is a national charity encouraging the integration of people with and without physical disabilities to achieve full inclusion in all aspects of life.
  • One way it does this is through a nationwide network of Phab Clubs.
  • Phab was founded in 1957 resulting from a young disabled man, called Terry Rolfe, saying he wanted “Opportunity and not pity”.
  • Phab’s Patron is Lord Snowdon. Ed Stewart is President and Sir Cliff Richard is a Vice President.
  • 2007 was Phab’s Golden Jubilee Year and Phab has provided support services to Club members throughout the 50 years.
