Organisation statement:

GDA is run by disabled people, for disabled people of all ages with any type of impairment. We provide learning, events, information and opportunities to connect and meet others. We support disabled people to have their voice heard in issues that matter to them. We also provide Welfare Rights advice, support and representation. All activities are free, inclusive and accessible with free, transport, personal assistance, communication support, accessible information provided to enable participation.

Commitment to digital participation:

We provide accessible and inclusive digital learning and support so that disabled people can participate fully in our organisation, its activities and in their own lives.

Support offered:

We will share our learning of how to make digital participation inclusive and accessible to disabled people of all ages and with any impairment/disability. We can offer training, talks and opportunities to hear directly from disabled learners about their experiences and the impact of inclusive learning.

Support wanted:

What we need is access to a range of digital devices and opportunities for funding to retain our digital coaches who have a wealth of specialist skills in supporting disabled people to get online and participate through digital technology.
