Darlington Association on Disability was established in 1986 as a voluntary and charitable organisation led by disabled people. It exists to promote independence and choice, supporting disabled people and carers through the provision of services, support, and information, and by tackling issues locally and nationally. DAD promotes the social model of disability and, as part of that remit, is actively involved in promoting disability equality and awareness of anti-discrimination legislation.
DAD acts as a focal point for consultation with disabled people and carers. It also manages a range of services and projects to support its aims.

As a local organisation we very much rely on the support of our local community. We support over 2,000 people every year to have greater choice and control and remove the barriers that disabled adults and children experience in their everyday lives. But we need YOUR help.
