Grant Logan is an award-winning entrepreneur and founder of digital platform Ability Today, a Community Interest Company formerly known as Disability Today. Grant says of the recent brand rename, ‘I felt it was time to focus on what we can do, and not what we can’t!’ Becoming disabled in 2003 after a road accident, he started on a new journey, which led to setting up an online social network for wheelchair users called ‘The Wheel Life’, this was before Facebook existed. (Dis) Ability Today originally was created from the frustrations he heard from his peers, not knowing what was going on within the disabled world. Grant’s mission was to connect disabled people with the news and information that is not always accessible.

In 2020, he launched the Academy for Disabled Journalists (ADJ) in partnership with the NCTJ after the success of the ‘Roving Reporter Programme’ run for volunteers, and now has 30+ students studying for a qualification in journalism. The ADJ is a unique and accessible initiative, empowering today’s students to become the journalists of tomorrow. Grant is passionate about inspiring the next generation and is a strong advocate for inclusion. Covid has created a new world of working from home, Grant’s mission is to provide new skills and training for our community to thrive from this, levelling the playing field and creating new pathways to employment.

“Proud to be part of such an impressive group of people who are all trying to do the same thing, supporting our community by breaking down the barriers of disability.”
