Lead Partner

GMCDP campaigns to promote the rights of disabled people and their inclusion in society. They provide information of use and interest to disabled people, publishing information sheets, bulletins and other publications. They also run events, membership meetings, and training courses. Whilst carrying out all of these activities they actively promote the understanding and implementation of The Social Model of disability, which underpins all their work.

They also take part in consultations with voluntary and statutory organisations, both locally and nationally, to ensure that equality and accessibility is embedded into the development of local policies and services. They run a number of projects for young disabled people aged 15 -30, to offer information, training and peer support.
