Who we are

Want to find out more about DABD, why we’re here and how we are run? This is a good place to start!

At DABD, 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.

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 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.

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 everything from welfare benefits advice and support to find work through to personalcare, independent living support and accessible transport.
