LDDA (Liberal Democrat Disability Association) is an association of Liberal Democrats, who either have personal experience of disability, look after someone who is disabled, or who are interested in disability.
We work to raise awareness and understanding of disability, both through the Liberal Democrats, and also the rest of society.
LDDA works within the party to raise both understanding of disability and awareness of what disability is. It aims to ensure that disability is not thought about as an after thought, but rather with everything else. We try to do this, by campaigning and lobbying at all levels of the party, by having stalls at conferences, and being a point of contact if anyone should have a query about disability. We also try to encourage the Party to ensure that all disabled members of the party are able to stand as candidates for election at every level of the party, and also for the party at elections.
We try to encourage the Party to ensure that anyone who has a disability is able to take part in the Party, ensure that Party literature is accessible to those with disabilities, and that meetings should be held in places which are accessible for all.
