This is a call to society
- Recognise us as equal to non-disabled people
- Not pity cases
- Not people who can be ignored
- Not an inconvenience
Our new campaign
In 2020, Disability Rights UK launched a new campaign – We Belong.
Disabled people make up a fifth of the population of the UK. We are not invisible. And yet we are still the largest minority which faces discrimination in this country.
We spoke with disabled people across the whole of the UK, and compiled a report based on what we were told. This report forms the basis of our submission to the Government's consultation on its National Strategy for Disabled People. Read the report here (PDF).
25 years of the DDA
In 1995 the government introduced the Disability Discrimination Act.
Today, twenty-five years later, disabled people still face barriers across society.
