GAD hosted an Extraordinary General Meeting to update members on the progress of the merger with Lewisham Disability Coalition. There was a presentation from John Ley on behalf of the trustees. Joanne Munn and Roz Hardie the Director of Lewisham Disability Coalition responded to questions from the floor. The new organisation will be in place on 1st August 2017. During the transition GAD will stay in The Forum although moving to a smaller office as we won't require as much space and we will be developing outreach opportunities so more people across the borough will be able to access our services.
