Yesterday the Office for Disability Issues (ODI) announced “a discussion with disabled people to gather suggestions for a new cross-government disability strategy.”
The ODI says:
“The Government’s ambition is to enable disabled people to fulfil their potential and have opportunities to play a full role in society. To realise this ambition, we want to tackle barriers to realising aspirations and individual control, as well as change attitudes and behaviour towards disabled people.
“This new strategy will build on previous discussions with disabled people, including the Independent Living Strategy, the Roadmap and the UK’s report to the UN on implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Disabled People.
“ODI has worked with disability organisations to create a discussion document which is available to download below. We would like to hear from disabled people, and the people and organisations that support them.”
The website includes a discussion document, online response form and video.
Deadline for contributions: 9 March 2012.
