About Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People

Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) is a Disabled People’s Organisation, which means it is controlled and run by disabled people only. All Executive Council members and staff positions are only available to disabled people. This is because as an organisation we feel it is essential for disabled people to have our own voice and our own control of our organisation. GMCDP does however welcome the support and involvement of non-disabled allies, who appreciate that control of our own organisations is an essential part of disabled people achieving control over our own lives.

GMCDP is a membership organisation, and our members are at the centre of everything we do. The organisation is led by members who are elected onto the Executive Council, and staffed by a small team.

GMCDP recognises that disabled people are discriminated against in all areas of society, and actively opposes the segregation of disabled people. All of our projects, campaigns and the activities of the Coalition are geared towards fighting against this discrimination and segregation.
