Goodbye To SURge

After 9 years The Advocacy Project and SURGe will be ending their work in Camden at the end of November, as the new provider – The Centre for Independent living\Camden Disability Action (CDA) – takes over the contract supporting experts by experience to engage with the learning disability community in Camden.

  • SURGe ‘storify – history and key achievements in pictures, videos and words

  • facts and figures‘ summary – showing the great number of people we’e worked with over the 9 years
