DAD is a non political organisation. However it actively campaigns on issues which affect the lives of disabled people, families with disabled children and carers. DAD listens to its members and tries to influence decisions that are being made at a local and national level.

Some examples of our work include-

• Gathering evidence and making the Council aware of the impact of the cuts on disabled people and carers
• Submitting consultation responses where the Government calls for evidence on issues such as welfare reforms
• Joining national campaigns led by organisation such as the Alliance for Inclusive Education and Scope
