AID Association for the Independence of Disabled People
The Association for the Independence of Disabled People has been launched to actively promote the needs of severely disabled people by initially creating an Annual National Disabled Day to provide a focus for the needs of the ever-increasing number of disabled people who still, all too often, have difficulties in accessing even the most basic facilities in the course of their lives, particularly where severe disability is concerned.
The Association has plans to introduce further objectives but its initial activity will be the establishment of a National ‘Disabled Day’ in the calendar.
‘Disabled Day’ is the idea of the Association’s Founder, The Honourable Mrs Ruth Adorian, who has fought a gallant battle against Motor Neurone Disease for the past six years and is determined to continue the battle and to see ‘Disabled Day’ on every calendar.
Latest News from AID
We apologise for the fact that this news site has not been updated recently for a variety of technical reasons.
It is our intention to update the news as and when it happens and with our plans for the current year we will be adding news of two exciting new projects, commencing with an announcement, released jointly with ReWalk Robotics at the end of last month, concerning AID’s involvement in fund raising for Lucy Dodd to acquire new legs to enable her to walk again after many years in a wheelchair.
AID will very soon be announcing its provision of another ReWalk exoskeleton for a young man in Shropshire who lost the use of his legs after a serious climbing accident.
In addition to AID’s involvement with this exciting ReWalk programme, we will soon be announcing another venture, where AID is involved in a training programme for dogs to “sniff out” MND, which, it is believed, will reduce the diagnosis time for this dreadful condition.
