GDI Hub works with selected partners who are also committed to accelerating Disability innovation for a fairer world. Our team support public, private and community sector partners in more than 15 countries to develop programme with real impact for disability inclusion. We always build on what we know works - co-production and creativity with a focus on tangible results.

Our approach, whether on products or policies, is to build low cost experiments, generate real data from user testing, and evolve and enhance our final ideas rapidly. This helps our clients to minimise uncertainty and risk while maximising impact. We always re-invest any profits in our mission. Get in touch if you'd like to know more or would like to work with us.
