Manifesto for Change: 10 Priorities for Disabled People in Scotland
We are pleased to share our Manifesto for Change, which outlines the priorities that we are asking political parties to commit to ahead of next year’s Scottish Parliament elections.
Disabled people face inequality and discrimination across all facets of society. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in disabled people becoming even more marginalised.
- Social Model of Disability
- Protect Human Rights
- Inclusive Communication
- Opportunities for Employment
- Support for Access Panels
- Equitable Social Care
- Accessible Transport
- Access to Justice
- Active Participation
- Supporting Young People
Our CEO Morven Brooks commented:
“Disabled people need to be involved at every stage in decisions that affect them. Our priorities are a step towards this, but we need more commitment across politics to make real change for disabled people in Scotland.”
