CASBA provides Advocacy and Support to Adults with Learning Disabilities in South Birmingham. 

The severe cuts being experienced within services and budgets are causing vulnerable citizens to be increasingly adversely affected, especially our citizens.  Having been in existence for over 30 years CASBA is busier at this time than ever before. 

We ensure that our organisation is inclusive and encourage our citizens to get involved in our governance, along with a dedicated number of volunteers.  Our quality marks are a testament to our commitment to achieve this.

As our mission statement states  'We work to ensure CASBA will challenge injustice, coordinate care giving, connect citizens and communities, cooperate with others and campaign for social justice, enabling our citizens to live as equal citizens and play a meaningful and active role in their communities.' 


We provide our advocacy services through 5 projects:

  • Parents - working with Parents going through family difficulties including court proceedings.
  • Choices and Changes - working with citizens on benefits and financial concerns
  • Mutual Carers - working with Carers of adults with Learning Disabilities
  • Safer lives safer futures - working with vulnerable adults to keep them safe.
  • Education is Special - A heritage lottery project

We have an experienced Trustee Executive Board that manages our governance and helps us develop our Business Plan and Strategy.

Over the last few years we have expanded our advocacy services to include training in personal and practical skills and our actively seeking to enable citizens to campaign to protect their rights and services.
