Welcome

Welcome to Disability Action in Islington (DAII), an organisation run by and for disabled people. We aim to support disabled people in Islington, so that they:

DAII provides a rangeRebecca Henderson DAII Link Worker with client of high quality, accessible services for disabled people who live, work or study in Islington. Click What We Do for more information.

We also work to raise awareness of the needs, interests and views of disabled people in Islington and to promote a more accessible and inclusive environment.

We do this by supporting and enabling disabled people to have a say in the services they use and the services they would like to receive through user engagement initiatives like the Disability Reference Group and the Housing Disability Panel. In addition we provide Training & Consultancy services to statutory, voluntary and business sector organisations to support them to become more accessible and inclusive to disabled people.

We produce a quarterly newsletter Islington Disability Network News and send out regular email bulletins to keep local disabled people informed about key news, campaigns, events and opportunities anyone in Islington can join our mailing list.

All of our work is based on the Social Model of Disability.

Social Model of Disability

The Social Model of Disability promotes the view that the poverty, disadvantage and social exclusion experienced by many disabled people is not the inevitable result of their impairments or medical conditions, but rather stems from attitudinal and environmental barriers. In other words it is the way society is organised that is the problem and it is this that needs to change to ensure equality of opportunity for disabled people in all areas of life.
