ecdp is looking forward to working with the Government to ensure the new disability strategy will reflect disabled people’s lived experiences.
Disabled people’s user-led organisations (DPULOs) can use this opportunity to gather ideas and evidence from their members. We understand the real issues. We know what really makes a difference to disabled people’s lives.
It’s vital that through DPULOs, disabled people use their voice and share their experiences of what works and what doesn’t, to help shape and deliver disability equality in our communities.
The Government is committed to ensuring appropriate support and intervention for disabled people at key life transitions, to realise disabled people’s potential and aspirations for education, work and independent living.
The Government is committed to enabling disabled people to make their own choices and have the right opportunities to live independently. We want to ensure that disabled people have personal control over the services they receive, and that support is delivered in the way they want it – across every area of their day-to-day lives, for example accommodation, travel or employment.
We want to promote positive attitudes and behaviours towards disabled people to enable participation in work, community life and wider society, tackling discrimination and harassment wherever they occur.
