MDAC’s mission to use the law to secure equality, inclusion and justice has been at the core of everything we do since we were founded in 2002.

Fourteen years later, MDAC Friends help us to make our mission possible by providing financial support to a wide variety of legal advocacy projects. Alongside cutting edge reports, ground breaking test-cases and hand-in-hand work with people with mental disabilities in Europe and Africa, our Friends help our staff team of just eleven people to ‘punch above our weight’.

Join us now and become more involved with our work, from insights over email to special events with MDAC staff, while supporting us where our work is needed the most.

Levels of membership

We have four levels of support starting from just £50 per year.

Associate: £50
Counsel: £100
Advocate: £250
Partner: £500

Whatever amount you donate, your money will be spent efficiently on achieving our human rights goals: MDAC has robust internal financial processes which are overseen by Trustees and undergoes an annual independent audit. We also welcome any additional donation you would like to give on top of your fee to join MDAC Friends.

It is possible to split your payment into regular instalments through Direct Debit. Please specify your wish to pay through this method on your form. MDAC is a registered charity (No. 1124016) and if you are a UK taxpayer, you can GiftAid your donation, so MDAC can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give.

As a Friend, you will enable MDAC to secure equality, inclusion and justice for people with mental disabilities worldwide.
