Who We are

Skipton and Craven Action for Disability or SCAD was formed in 1981 by Marjorie Charlesworth and a group of likeminded individuals who celebrated the International Year of the Disabled by creating the charity which now provides over 15,000 journeys each year to those with mobility problems.

The organisation has grown over the last 40 years, most recently under the leadership of Board Chairman Richard Clarke alongside CEO Stephanie Wheelhouse (sinceĀ  July 2017).
