Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP)

Who are we?

Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) was established in 1985 and is an organisation of disabled people; that is, run and controlled by disabled people.

GMCDP aims to:

  • promote the independence and integration of disabled people in society;
  • identify and challenge the discrimination faced by disabled people in society today; and
  • encourage and support the self-organisation of disabled people.

What do we do?

GMCDP campaigns to promote the rights of disabled people. We do this by running information sharing events, open meetings and training courses and providing information about disability and independent living issues.

We take part in consultations with voluntary and statutory organisations, both locally and nationally, to ensure that disability equality is embedded into the development of local policies and services.

We run a number of projects for young disabled people aged 10 to 25 to offer information, training and peer support.

We actively promote the understanding and implementation of the social model of disability, which underpins all our work.

Members and volunteers play an important role in the work of GMCDP, so please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about how you can get involved.
