Report claims that UK is failing on disability rights

A report on the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in England and Wales claims that successive Governments have often failed to take account of disabled people’s rights when making policy, and have introduced some policies that actually make things worse. The report has been produced by Disability Rights UK and Disability Wales, and is based on extensive engagement with disabled people, including surveys and focus group meetings in venues including Cardiff, Wrexham and Llanelli.

Topics covered include accessibility, transport and employment. You can find out more and read the full report here.
