DICAG is a cross disability non-racial national organisation that was formed by parents of disabled children in 1993 for the purpose of addressing the needs of disabled children in South Africa. Its services are focussed on children in difficult situations as a result of racial oppression, environmental location, and/or severity of disability. The organisation has mobilised over 12 000 parents of disabled children, of whom 3900 are registered members. There are 86 affiliated local parent branches, with representation from all nine provinces.

DICAG’s vision is to continue to be an organisation of parents that advocates for the rights of children with disabilities and their full integration into society with equal opportunities for all.

DICAG has two key programmes:
Advocacy Programme which ensures that all agencies, including relent government departments, NGO’s and human right bodies, continue to formulate and implement disability and child friendly policies. Development Programme which aims to empower parents of children with disability with knowledge and life skills to be able to respond to their children’s rights and needs and empower children with disability to be selfadvocates on their own issues.
