Working Through Peoples Stories
ADHD Action works through the power of people's stories, empowering individuals and families, ensuring much needed change as soon as possible.
Bringing together the ADHD community, partnering with other national organisations - local groups, clinicians, commissioners, educators, police, prison officers, and more.
Current Provision is Inadequate
Considering ADHD affects 5% of children and nearly 3% of adults, the burden to society across health, education, criminal justice, work and benefits, homelessness and social care is vast and little understood or discussed, let alone addressed.
Huge Cost Savings
Huge cost savings are possible for stretched public services, if this highly treatable condition is given the attention it desperately needs.
ADHD Action’s initial goals include lobbying and campaigning cross party for an ADHD Act of Parliament, similar to the one that exists for autism; increase awareness across public services and society as a whole; and push for vastly improved provision and pathways for diagnosis and support.
