Earlier today the Shaw Trust Disability Power List 100 for 2019 was announced and Euan MacDonald, founder of Euan’s Guide and the Euan MacDonald Centre is on it.
Euan (45) was diagnosed with MND in 2003 and co-founded the centre for MND in 2007. The centre is based at the University of Edinburgh and is a not-for-profit charitable network of 200 Scottish researchers. He also founded with his sister Kiki Euan’s Guide now a highly regarded disabled access charity and source of information. The site helps people with disability find places to visit which are the most easily accessed, and gives down to earth and honest reviews of places and facilities.
Euan MacDonald said: “While I’m delighted to be featured on this list, it is really everyone who has reviewed on Euan’s Guide or who is involved with the research into MND who deserves this award. It is only by working together that we are able to help others.”
The Shaw Trust Disability Power List 100 is an annual publication of the 100 most influential disabled people in the UK. Nearly 200 nominations were received for the 100 places.
The Disability Power List 100 is compiled by an independent judging panel, chaired by Kate Nash OBE. Kate is the world’s leading authority in ‘Networkology’ – the science behind the growth of workplace networks and resource groups. In 2007 she was awarded an OBE for services to disabled people. In 2013 she was appointed Ambassador to Disability Rights UK.
