The Disability Action Alliance is a cross sector network of organisations committed to making a positive difference to the lives of disabled people.
Members work to deliver tangible improvements to the lives of disabled people at both local and national level. Improvements are sought through partnership working, innovation and the sharing of information.
Achievements to date include:
- the development, launch and on-going review of the Care and Disability Money Advice Service (MAS) website section;
- introduction of a ‘Safe Journey Card’ and driver training in Blackpool to improve the travel experience of disabled people, which is now being adopted in other areas;
- publication of ‘Inclusive Communities Guidance’ for Disabled People’s User Led Organisations and Local Authorities to better support local communities to include disabled people in decision making that affects their lives;
- launch of and ever increasing number of pledges to the Volunteering Charter; and
- updating the DAA Website to better enhance partnership working and sharing information.
