Next Spring, the government will publish its National Disability Strategy. The Conservative Party pledged to create a strategy in its 2019 Election Manifesto.
We want to make sure that the government hears the voices of disabled people, including those they don’t normally hear from. Our autumn programme of roundtable events are your opportunity to have your say on a range of issues. We will be collating what you tell us into a submission to government, as well as to influence our work as the UK’s leading national disabled persons’ user-led organisation.
While the UK has made significant improvements in the accessibility of public space and transport, many disabled people still face barriers when trying to move from place to place. Many public spaces remain entirely or partially off limits, or are accessible only in theory.
This roundtable event aims to produce a list of 3-5 priorities to push the government on regarding the accessibility of transport and the built environment.
