The Disabled Police Association was founded in July 2012 in response to a need for a coordinated response to national policing matters affecting disabled officers and staff within the police services of the United Kingdom.
The DPA is run by an Executive Committee made up of serving officers and police staff, drawn from all ranks and grades from police forces across the UK. National representatives meet regularly to discuss employment issues within the police service relating to disability, injury and illness. Support for individual officers and staff is provided by Force disability support networks.
Our Association holds no financial budget, and we receive no government funding.
(If you need assistance with autism, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia, ADHD or other neurodiverse conditions, our sister group the National Police Autism Association also offers personal advice and support.)
