Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People is at its heart, a grass roots campaigning organisation, which campaigns for the rights and full inclusion of disabled people into society.

For over 30 years, GMCDP has campaigned for issues such as: making public transport accessible for all, against assisted suicide, against the closure of the Independent Living Fund, against Work Capability Assessments, the closure of ITV’s Telethon, for the official recognition of British Sign Language, for Manchester Town Hall to be wheelchair accessible and many more.
