Contribute to new disability strategy

On 1 December 2011, the government announced a discussion with disabled people to gather suggestions for a new cross-government disability strategy.

The government’s ambition is to enable disabled people to fulfill their potential and have opportunities to play a full role in society. To realise this ambition, the government wants to tackle barriers to realising aspirations and individual control, as well as change attitudes and behaviour towards disabled people.

This new strategy will build on previous discussions with disabled people, including the Independent Living Strategy, the Roadmap and the UK’s report to the UN on implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Disabled People.

The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) has worked with disability organisations to create a discussion document which is available to download below. They would like to hear from disabled people, and the people and organisations that support them.

Please send us your response by 5pm, 9 March 2012.
