Welcome to the GDA website

If you have a question about living life as a disabled person in Guernsey, why not ask other disabled islanders? It’s a small island, someone is bound to know the answer.

The first step is to look in our Frequently Asked Questions to see if what you are interested in is something that a lot of people want to know.

If that doesn’t work, send us a message using the Contact Us page and we’ll try to help.

You can use this website keep up with the news relevant to disabled islanders in our Newsblog and add your comments to the stories, if you wish. Or join us on our Facebook page.

This website was built by disabled islanders, and the local charities who support them, as a place where disabled people and their family members can share information and experiences.

For information in person, especially if you would like to discuss your individual circumstances in confidence, drop in to the Health Information Guernsey next to the Ron Short Centre at Beau Sejour or in the foyer of the new block at the PEH or call 01481 707470.

If you have found this site because you are planning to visit our lovely islands and want to know about access to hotels, attractions and other public buildings, there are two sources of information:

We are thrilled to have Paralympian and parliamentarian, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE, as our patron.

Changing attitudes towards disabled people in Guernsey can be a real uphill battle.  Knowing that Tanni believes in what we are doing and is there for us if we need support is a huge boost for all our members.  Tanni came to the island to help put the case for disability equality law in January 2013.

To find out more, go to our Newsblog.  Follow Tanni on Twitter @tanni_GT.
