Associate Membership

We can’t achieve our Vision all by ourselves! We need allies and supporters to work with us to remove barriers and improve the lives of disabled people.

Carers, family members and workers who support disabled people can become associate (non-voting) members of GDA.

We actively look to work with organisations who support our mission and values. Organisations that are not led by disabled people can also become associate members.

Easyfundraising 

Raise funds for GDA every time you shop online through easyfundraising.

Making a donation through easyfundraising is quick, simple and 100% secure. Unlike other sites, they don’t take a commission on donations or charge us for using their services.

Donate

We value every penny that we receive to support our work and programmes.

Any donation you make goes directly towards the costs of providing free, accessible lifelong learning and support, to empower disabled people and people with long term conditions of all ages, right across Glasgow and beyond. This includes the costs of accessible venue hire, access equipment and transport, interpreters and communication support, personal assistance, tutors and trainers.

If you can spare a penny, a pound or more, please help us remove barriers, to ensure disabled people can have our voices heard – help us drive forwards equality in Glasgow and across Scotland.

You can donate here. (Paypal).
