Association of Disabled Professionals

Since formation in 1971, by Disabled Professionals and Managers who needed to share experiences, the Association of Disabled Professionals (ADP) has been providing individually tailored practical advice using a common sense approach. We have assisted fellow disabled people and supporters with:
1) Setting up, managing and developing a business.
2) Employment issues, including gaining and retaining employment.
3) Education and career issues.
4) Other issues that impact upon employment and self-employment.
5) Quiet and positive campaigning on issues relating to the education and employment of disabled people and liaising with others.
The ADP has a telephone and email helpline operated by two disabled part time members of staff and volunteers. We are often the last point of call for many clients who have been to other organisations for support. Using our own experiences, advice is given by disabled people to other disabled people and others. Often disabled people want to hear from other disabled people and ‘I wish I’d talked to you before’ is a common remark. The ADP is able to provide an “insider perspective” to effectively support many disabled people to achieve their career aspirations, as well as to support other organisations to generate positive outcomes in their dealings with disabled people.
