The ADP, founded in 1971, exists to provide a forum to enable disabled people to share personal experiences of successful professional development, and to help create conditions for other disabled people to realise their career and workplace ambitions.
The ADP is an organisation controlled and run by its disabled members, although non-disabled professional members make a valuable contribution. All ADP officers are themselves disabled and give their time voluntarily.We employ three disabled people who work a total of 35 hours per week.
Today the ADP has amongst its members, disabled people who are working or who have worked as professionals or at managerial level in medicine, the law, health and social services, the church, politics, commerce, education, science and the arts. Increasingly, because of the barriers of work, disabled people are considering setting up their own businsess as an option.
