In Visibility Today: Gail Ward from Disabled People Against Cuts

Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) is a direct-action campaigning group which was set up in 2010 in response to the ongoing austerity cuts across the UK. Gail Ward, the head of their North-East branch, joined them when she found she needed support herself, and since then she’s been an active campaigner against austerity, and a vocal supporter of disabled people’s rights.
