Daisy UK has been asked to host a disability round table conference on behalf of the Shadow Minister for Disabilty on the 7th of March 2013. The conference is titled ‘Making rights a reality for disabled people’ and local organisations and Government Ministers will be attending to discuss any barriers or issues disabled people may face in society. Your opinion will contribute in making a difference to many disabled people facing cut backs, hardship and exclusion.
The current economic downturn and the stream lining of local services has had a knock on effect on disabled people and their families who are the more vulnerable members of our society. It is important to create a strategy to help and explain the rights of disabled people from education to employment to benefits and human rights giving them the right to take ownership of their own futures.
