Since 1989, LADPP has been providing services to Spanish and Portuguese speaking migrants and refugees living in London, with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on those with disabilities.
We are a Latin American, user-led organisation proud to serve people from Latin America, Europe and Africa.
Our service users typically face a number of barriers, including; language, disability, lack of information, low wages, uncertain employment and discrimination.
Our main service is Advice and Representation: we provide free, confidential and impartial advice, working with people to actively solve their issues relating to housing, welfare, debts, healthcare, employment and taxes. We act as a bridge between social and public services and our community.
We also have the Health and Wellbeing Service, which provides psychological support, workshops promoting healthy living and a Befriending service.
We support community development through English language classes, volunteering opportunities, training and access to certified education programmes. We also have an interpreting service and carry out cultural and social activities to reduce isolation.
Our aims are to promote confidence, independence, wellbeing and community integration and to reduce poverty.
