Our vision is a world where disabled people participate fully and lead our own lives with our human rights upheld, connecting with peers and opportunities; contributing to families, communities and wider society on a full and equal basis alongside non-disabled people.

Our mission is to promote equality, rights and social justice with and for disabled people and we do this through programmes which build confidence, connections and capacity of disabled people.

Our programmes support disabled people and those with long term conditions across Glasgow – you do not need to be a member to take part.

Over the last 4 years, GDA has transformed our delivery model to respond to the urgent and pressing needs of disabled people. Programmes are now all available online, by phone and in person.
