The Trust Lorraine Foundation: continuing to fight for equality - through us

On Saturday 3rd March 2018, Jackie Driver, Chief Executive of Breakthrough UK, and Jenny Gradwell, Daughter of the late Lorraine Gradwell, launched The Trust Lorraine Foundation at the Walk for Women in Manchester. The Foundation - in Lorraine Gradwell’s name - is a joint project between the Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People (GMCDP)and Breakthrough UK to increase disabled people’s representation in elected office.

Lorraine Gradwell MBE was a founding member of Breakthrough UK and GMCDP - her drive and involvement in both organisations continued right up to her untimely death last year.  She was also a passionate advocate locally and nationally for disabled people’s democratic participation and access to elected office.
