United Nations reviews UK's human rights record

The United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has carried out a review of the UK's compliance with the convention on human rights, and the status and treatment of disabled people in the UK. Disability Wales was one of several UK organisations which sent representatives to Geneva for the review.

Although it praises some initiatives by the Welsh and Scottish governments to promote inclusion, the committee is critical of the UK government’s inconsistent approach to protecting disability rights and its failure to audit the impact of its austerity policies on disabled people. You can find out more on the Disability Wales website.
