Announcing Herts Ability

We are delighted to announce that, from 14th February 2020, Hertfordshire Action on Disability (HAD) will be changing its name to Herts Ability.

We have been carefully considering whether a change of name is necessary, to more accurately reflect our core values and services. Following discussions with our customers, we recognise that people from all walks of life rightly emphasise ability not disability. Our focus is on assisting and supporting people to be as independent as possible, and we believe Herts Ability is a better reflection of what we do.

We will remain a charity, and continue to be a local centre of excellence and knowledge to older people and those with disabilities in Hertfordshire and the surrounding area. 

We have no plans to change our services at present (including the provision of equipment and occupational therapy), but we are always thinking of better ways of serving our community. We remain an accredited member of Driving Mobility - enabling us to provide driving, scooter and passenger assessments.

Apart from our name change and new logo, our contact details will also be changing. Our new website address will be, and our email addresses will end (instead of Our existing HAD website page and email addresses will continue to redirect you to us, while our office addresses and telephone numbers remain unaffected.   

Should you have any queries following our name change, please get in touch with us through your usual contacts.

Helping our clients live independent lives is the overriding aim of our charity and it will always be central to our identity and objectives. Our commitment to these core values - which place clients at the centre of everything we do - will continue.
