Bath Disability Trust was formerly known as Bath Association for Disabled People (BADP), formed to promote and co-ordinate activities and organisations assisting disabled people and their families. In 1993 a significant sum of money was bequeathed to the Association to be held in trust for the benefit of people in Bath and its immediately adjoining parishes.  It is the management of the charitable fund which is the Trust’s primary function today.

The Trustees meet six times a year to consider applications for funding to improve the quality of life for physically or mentally impaired people in Bath.
