Volunteer Campaigns Roles
GMCDP has a great volunteer opportunity for someone who enjoys working in campaigning. A person / group of people who are able to reflect the views of disabled people and, with support, feel they could challenge welfare providers, local authorities and the Government to do things differently. As an organization, we focus on those who have experienced disabling barriers. We are looking for a driven person who is both analytical and can work towards achieving a common goal. Working as part of a small team, we are looking for self-motivated people that could help support the work of GMCDP’s new Campaigns Worker. (Please see the full descriptions attached to this page)
Hours: 4-8 hours a month to get the best out of the experience but this is entirely down to you.
Location: Manchester and/or Remote
Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP) is a disabled people’s organisation (DPO) which is 100% run and controlled by disabled people (including our staff, members and Executive Council). We are a membership organisation, and our members are the core of our organisation, informing, shaping and guiding all the work GMCDP does. Our mission statement is:
“To promote the full inclusion of disabled people in society and challenge the discrimination and oppression of disabled people.”
