GMCDP regularly produces information sheets on topics we think will be interesting to and useful for disabled people. Please find below links to the information sheets we currently have available.
GMCDP produces information in a variety of formats: 14pt, 18pt, 22pt, audio, Braille and easier to read. We can also provide documents as Word files rather than PDF. Please contact the office if you need a format which is not on this website.
