Disability Advice Project (DAP)

The Disability Advice Project (DAP) provides a welfare rights service to support disabled people, their families and carers. 

Disability Advice Project (DAP) was established in 1996 as the dream of its founder, Pauline Jones, whose daughter was born severely disabled. Pauline first became aware of the problems faced by parents of children with disabilities when her daughter Celyn was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She found there was nowhere to go, not just for emotional support but for everyday advice on benefits, care and respite. To help families in similar situations she founded DAP.

The charity continues to support people with disabilities, their families and carers. Its vision is equality for disabled people, so they have the same chances and opportunities in life as non-disabled people.
