About Us

Disability Action in Islington (DAII) was set up in 1996 following consultation with local disabled people about what sort of disability rights organisation they wanted in Islington.



DAII is a Disabled and Deaf Peoples Organisation (DDPO). This means we were created by and are defined by disabled people. All of our Management Committee members have lived experience of Disability, as are many of our staff and all of our volunteers. This creates a unique organisational culture, welcoming to other disabled people, and able to understand the experiences of disabled people.



From the outset we have had a clear vision of our purpose - to enable local disabled people to access services and entitlements and challenge exclusion and discrimination.

Disability Inclusion Training

DAII is Islington’s only pan-impairment, user-led deaf and disabled people’s organisation and has unparalleled knowledge and understanding of disabled, and Deaf and Disability equality issues.

We raise awareness and understanding of Deaf and Disability equality issues with service providers, campaigners, researchers, and policy makers.

 

 

 

 

 

We have trained staff at:

As experts by experience we are best placed to share the experiences and needs of disabled people. We support and equip service providers & staff with the knowledge they need to identify the barriers in their organisations that put disabled people at a disadvantage. We give them the space they need to explore specific practical adjustments and solutions to remove barriers to improve their customer service.
