Our Charity

Our Charity

H.A.D. are a local independent charity who provide assistance to meet the physical, emotional and recreational needs of people with physical/sensory disabilities; and carers over the age of 18 years,  within an inclusive, friendly and supportive environment. We provide a wide range of activities, facilities and services to enable them to lead more satisfying and independent lives and we seek to empower people by providing them with useful information or by referring them to appropriate sources of help.

We work in partnership with a range of statutory and voluntary organisations for the benefit of people living in the London Borough of Havering.



H.A.D. is governed by a Board of Trustees who meet regularly and are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the Association and establishing policy. Trustees are elected at the Annual General Meetings of H.A.D.


H.A.D. holds open meetings with guest speakers on the first Thursday of the month except January and August at Whittaker Hall starting at 1.30pm. Refreshments provided.
