What is a Disability Supporters Association?  It is an independent organisation that gives disabled supporters a voice, social integration and a fundraising committee for disabled facilities and improvements.

A DSA is like any other supporter’s club, with a committee and constitution, but are centric to disabled supporters and their carer’s.  Many DSA’s have regular social events, sponsor players, award trophies, organise away travel and work with club officials, supporter’s clubs and community trusts to make match days the best experience possible for anyone with a disability.
