About.

The Guernsey Disability Alliance was formed in 2008 and is a collective voice for individual disabled islanders, their family members and more than 40 member charities.

We campaign for greater respect for the rights and dignity of disabled islanders and carers.
We influence policy and practical change in a manner consistent with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
We engage and empower our members so that their individual voices are heard.
