Glasgow Disability Alliance (GDA) is a thriving disabled people led organisation with 5000 members across Greater Glasgow – and counting! We are the biggest groundswell of disabled people in Scotland and a leading example of a grassroots community of identity.
Through fully accessible learning, coaching, and events GDA connects disabled people with each other, with opportunities and with decision makers. We recognise talents and strengths and support disabled people to build on these, participate and be leaders in their own lives.
GDA is controlled by our full voting members: disabled people, people with long term conditions, and disabled people led organisational members in the Glasgow area. GDA’s member organisations make up the Glasgow DPO Network. Many individual members also run their own impairment-specific support groups e.g. for stroke survivors, or people with MS or Fibromyalgia, and social clubs for older people.
GDA Programmes support you to build confidence, set goals, and feel more in control of your life, helping you get where you want to be. We provide transport and personal assistance for those who need it, to remove barriers so you can tap into the talents, goals and passions you never knew you had!
Through GDA learning and events, our members connect to:
A diverse community of disabled people.
A network of peer support – sharing experiences with others in the same boat and identifying barriers, solutions and plans for the future.
Information, activities and support services to help you take control of your life.
New opportunities and crucial support to have your say, set new goals, and fulfil your potential.
