Asian People with Disabilities Alliance (APDA)

The Asian People's Disability Alliance (APDA) is a user-led registered charity of Asian disabled people.
Launched and active since 1988, APDA is a non-political, non-religious and non-profit making entity.

Its aims and objectives are:

  • to provide needs-led and user-led culturally-appropriate services that mainstream service providers are unable to provide because of limited or no expertise in culturally-related matters of Asian disabled people, their carers and their families.
  • to work in partnership and in collaboration with service planners and other mainstream bodies to help incorporate the particular needs of APDA's client groups in service planning and other programmes that affect their lives.
  • to act as a resource for Asian disabled people, their carers and families for consultation, peer support, exchange of information and ideas etc. and as facilitators in their social development.

It came into existence after a conference held in Brixton, London that aimed to address why BME people with disabilities (pwd) did not access mainstream public services. APDA was then founded by a number of Asian disabled delegates to that conference, with its aim being to increase the numbers of Asian pwd accessing mainstream health and social care services by APDA offering such services itself by in collaboration and partnership with mainstream providers.
