How do we ensure the quality of this service?

Action on Disability regularly consults with the young people who access our projects. The delivery of our activities is based on what they tell us they want. Young people have access to evaluation sessions and feedback forums as well as planning forums that help us to shape the way we deliver.

Action on Disability Youth Service adheres to strict policy and guidelines that safeguard children and young people from any form of harm; this includes safe recruitment and safeguarding young disabled people.

Action on Disability is a disabled person’s organisation (DPO) and is a user lead organisation. This means it has an executive committee made up of local people who access or have accessed our organisation as users of the service. Action on Disability Youth Service reports on all areas of our delivery to the executive committee regularly throughout the year.
