GDA Board Members

As a disabled people led organisation, our board is elected from our members, and disabled people make up a minimum of 60% of Board membership at all times.

To further strengthen the exceptional expertise of our Governance structure, we are striving to increase the diversity of our Board membership, working towards a gender balance, as well seeking expertise of Black or Minority Ethnic disabled people and younger disabled people.
