Disability Action Haringey

Building a more inclusive Haringey.
Disability Action Haringey (DAH) was formed in 2020 with the aim of supporting disabled people in the London Borough of Haringey maintain their independence and freedom. We are committed to the social model of disability and building a society that accepts and accommodates everyone.

As a Deaf and Disabled Persons’ Organisation, our services will always be centred on the demands of the service users themselves, which leads us to take a holistic approach to support.

Disability Action Haringey are becoming the voice of the disabled community in Haringey through our members. Join us today and make a difference in getting our voice heard!
