This blog serves to tell everyone about efforts to create a new, national organisation for disabled people. The intention is to be democratic, accountable and led by disabled people, to act as a voice in the media, civil society and politics.

Posts here will let you know what's happening as we try to work out the best way to do this, and include everyone. Comments are welcome, and we'll try to integrate everyone's feedback to make sure that we end up with a credible organisation that as many disabled people as possible are happy to be involved with.

For now, this blog is run by Sam Barnett-Cormack (twitter @narco_sam). This is subject to change as things move along.
