The Police National Dyslexia Association (PNDA – affectionately known as Panda) is a privately run association comprising of UK Police Officers and Staff. Our Aim is to support our Police colleagues with Dyslexia and other neurodivergent conditions in the workplace and in their day to day lives, and to promote awareness and learning around Dyslexia and neurodivergence.

Here, you will find information on Dyslexia and neurodivergence, resources, and updates on our hard work supporting our colleagues.

Police National Dyslexia Association

The concept of the Police National Dyslexia Association (PNDA, affectionately known as Panda) was thought up in the mid 2010s. The basic idea of the PNDA was, is, and always will be to support neurodivergent police colleagues, be they warranted officers, civilian staff, or volunteers.

Nationwide, there are massive differences in how all the police forces (home office or not) approach neurodiversity, specifically dyslexia. It is the aim of the PNDA to work with organisations to standardise a wholly adequate response to approaching dyslexia, so that our colleagues nationwide can feel secure in the knowledge that, no matter where they are, they will be able to access the best support and services.
