Updates and developments in our Advocacy Service.
Self advocacy is about empowering people to have choice and control over their lives.
DAD has a team of skilled and experienced advocates who can provide one to one advocacy support and also a range of self advocacy groups to support people to speak up themselves.
DAD can currently provide advocacy across Darlington, Stockton, Redcar and Middlesbrough. In addition we are also funded by the Police Crime and Victims Office to provide advocacy for victims of Hate Crime and victims of any crime who have mental health needs.
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.
