Do you want to influence government policy? Disability Rights UK wants to hear from as many disabled people as possible about the issues that affect you and the kinds of changes you want to see in society and in government policy. This month, they are launching their We Belong campaign. As the government prepares to launch its National Strategy for Disabled People, its time for you to feed into it and have your say on the shape of our future.
The campaign is running two sessions on 30 September discussing issues and priorities of disabled women, and two on 1 October discussing priorities of disabled people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. The links are below.
