GMCDP Introductory Newssheet, February 1986, Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People
This introductory newssheet was published by GMCDP in February 1986, after its founding in June 1985, to explain what the Coalition was and attract more members and supporters.
It can be seen as the starting point for "Coalition" magazine, although it only contains details of some upcoming events that were of potential interest to disabled people in Greater Manchester, and a brief explanation of the origins and purpose of GMCDP.
It was followed a month later by the 'GMCDP Newsletter', which had similar content plus reports from conferences and articles about employment and public transport. This then became "Coalition News", and finally by 1989 just "Coalition". In the Disabled People's Archive we have categorised these as one publication, starting with this newssheet.
