Aims, Mission, Vision


SHADA aims to support those professionals who include the sexual and relationship aspects of their disabled clients in their holistic care.

Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality, it is not merely the absence of diseases,  dysfunction or infirmity (WHO 1975).


SHADA envisages a more inclusive society where every disabled person’s unique sexual identity is given due respectful, non-judgemental recognition and acceptance, enabling its diverse expression and celebration.


SHADA’s mission is to support and facilitate the sex and relationship needs of all people with disabilities, campaigning to remove the stigma attached.
