Disability Action North East
   
Illustration: our rights We were set up in 1992 as a group of disabled people working and campaigning for fully comprehensive and enforceable civil and human rights for all disabled people.

Most of our work is based around campaigns run by small groups of people. All our work is controlled by disabled people, although non-disabled allies are very welcome.

We also work to promote and share information about the disabled people's movement and the issues that affect us.

What we stand for

How you can take part

We believe that it is society that 'disables' us, not our bodies. We work to challenge this discrimination.

Alternative ways of explaining our differences - the medical and social models of disability

We work to promote and share information about the disabled people's movement and the issues that affect us.
