The Greater Manchester Disabled People’s Panel (GMDPP) was created as an initiative between Disabled People’s Organisations and the Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham. We aim to ensure that disabled people’s involvement in all aspects of running and planning for the future of the city region are better represented. So that our lives and rights improve, because as ever, we say- Nothing About Us, Without Us!

We do things differently here, we are pioneers, we are the only city region doing this at the moment, we hope the idea spreads!
