Who we are

Who we are

Who we are

The support and development of individuals (primarily with impairment, but not exclusively) by the provision of facilities and opportunities to enable greater economic, social, educational and physical mobility through personal development.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity for personal development to achieve their full potential in order to live their life as independently as possible and of their choosing.

We believe that all excluded people should:

  • Be able to influence local decision making
  • Have choice in the way they live and work
  • Have inclusive, independent access to living
  • Have facilities and be facilitated in order to have access within the community

We aim to provision second tier advice and support to organisations that have similar aims and objectives to our own.

What we do

We provide services that give people the opportunities to create a better life.

People and communities have been at the heart of what we do for over 60 years and they will continue to be well into the future.

The services that we offer include:

People may face barriers in life for a number of reasons – whether it’s disability (physical and sensory), unemployment, poverty, isolation, poor health and lack of work or training.

We want to make sure everyone has equal access to opportunities, be it work, benefits, training, transport or social activities to help them live an independent life.

We want to break down the barriers that can prevent people from living the life they would choose and encourage them to be as independent as they want to be.

Our Safeguarding Policy

At DABD we take our responsibilities for safeguarding extremely seriously and believe that it is never acceptable for a child, young person, vulnerable adult, apprentice, or any member of society to experience abuse of any kind. Safeguarding concerns can be reported to our panel at any time by email safeguarding@dabd.org.uk or you can contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Elaine James, or our Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Emma Middleton.
