HAD (formally Harrow Association of Disabled people) originated in 1972, a small grass roots organisation, which recognised that disabled people in Harrow had no overall organisation to go to and there was no ‘umbrella’ organisation in Harrow drawing together all the impairment specific groups. There was a great initial focus on welfare benefits. 

Gladys Janes MBE and a small group of disabled people, felt the need for such a service to support disabled people when claiming the welfare benefits that they desired.

HAD provides a number of services that support disabled people in the borough of Harrow,

eg - Advocacy (someone to act on your behalf and/or assist you), Payroll (when employing a carer) and Welfare Benefits (advice and support), plus many more. Please visit their website for more information.
