What is the Coalition?
Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) is an organisation of disabled people; that is, controlled by disabled people. Only disabled people can be on the Management Committee and vote at meetings, and GMCDP employs only disabled workers.
GMCDP does, however, welcome the involvement of non-disabled supporters, who appreciate that control of our own organisations is an essential part of disabled people achieving control over their own lives.
The Coalition recognises that disabled people are discriminated against and actively opposes the segregation of disabled people.
What are GMCDP’s aims?
- GMCDP aims to promote the independence and integration of disabled people in society.
- GMCDP aims to identify and challenge the discrimination faced by disabled people in society today.
- GMCDP aims to encourage and support the self-organisation of disabled people
GMCDP Membership runs from 1 April-31 March. Please go to our Membership Page for more information.
