Disability Rights UK’s vision is of a society where everyone with lived experience of disability or health conditions can participate equally as full citizens. By being part of Disability Rights UK you will be helping realise this vision. We will encourage Members to be involved. We need your views, as well as information about your experiences. We will ask you about these in surveys to give us evidence for our policy, research, media and campaigning work. We will share information and good practice through our newsletters and at Disability Rights UK events and conferences.
This year will see the start of significant benefit changes, including disabled people losing contributions-based ESA in the Work Related Activity Group from April as well as major plans for the abolition of DLA for working age disabled people. We will keep you up to date on Government plans and involve you in work to influence and improve the DWP agenda.
We will also be campaigning for a fair deal for social care as the Government approaches and finalises plans to overhaul how we support older and disabled people with higher costs and more restrictive services being planned across the country.
Alongside the significant Government agenda we will also be undertaking our own research on people's aspirations for welfare and support - join now to help lead the debate.
Membership is open to organisations and individuals. All current NCIL, Disability Alliance and Radar members are also members of Disability Rights UK until 31 March 2012.
