Two women and a man share a drink outdoors during a bike ride. They are all smiling and joking with each other. The woman on the left is leaning up against her bike. She has blonde hair and is wearing a light green baseball cap. She is also wearing blue shorts and a grey t-shirt, with a white graphic on the back. The woman in the middle has brown hair and has a pair of sunglasses balancing on her head. She has a white shirt on with a blue long-sleeved jacket over the top. She also is wearing purple shorts. The man on the right has brown hair tied back and is wearing a grey t-shirt. He is sitting on a green hand-powered tricycle. In the background, there is long yellow grass and dark green fern trees.

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).

About We Belong

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.

A bit of background
A man is sitting on a wooden bench, facing right. His head is out of shot and we can see his torso and legs. He's working on a laptop which is resting on his right leg. He has a coffee in his right hand and has his left hand on the keyboard. He has a prosthetic left leg. He is wearing a red and black dotted gym t-shirt and black sports shorts. Next to him, there is a second prosthetic leg resting on the bench.
A woman sits in a black wheelchair, at a wooden table. She has dark red hair and black earphones in her ears. She has a yellow blouse and beige coloured trousers on. She is having a video meeting using a silver laptop on the table in front of her. She is smiling and waving to the webcam. In the background, there are shelves on the wall with small potted plants resting on them.
