East Renfrewshire Disability Action (ERDA) members consist of people who are disabled, non-disabled and carers. The group was launched at the Barriers & Bridges Community Conference event in March 2011. Then as now, it is important there is a local disability organisation to raise the issues and concerns of disabled people at a local and national level. This has been the case since our beginnings but has become even more so as disabled people are disproportionally negatively impacted by the unfair and unjust Westminster welfare cuts as well as cuts, increased charges and changes to various local authority services that disabled people use.

These policies and decisions maintain and reinforce the social, physical, attitudinal, cultural and economic barriers that prevent disabled people taking up their rightful role as full and equal citizens.
