DAS aims to promote the interests of disabled people whose views have difficulty reaching into the mainstream of public policy. This may be because people are not involved in consultation processes, are not included in or have no influence on lobby groups, have communication support needs which are not met or are poorly understood, or they may simply not be asked.

In January 2016, DAS conducted a series of focus groups engaging directly with disabled people who access services through our members.  The range of topics was diverse including attitudes in society, accessing support and services, civic life and the challenges of living with a disability.  The report will be published shortly and its findings used to inform the DAS Manifesto.
