Everybody can make a difference with this issue.

Government, NHS, businesses, corporations, local authorities even those who don’t think they can change anything.

We need to change the way disabled people are treated in the UK.

It can be simple every day things like the way society reacts to and treats people with disability, both seen and hidden. The NHS has a part to play in this as well. Why do hospitals insist on sending letters to blind people in normal print. But probably the people with the biggest ability and the biggest failings are the Government. Disabled people were not responsible for the 2008 financial crisis. Nor were we responsible for COVID-19. But in both instances disabled people suffered disproportionately. Although the Government signed up to the United Nations Convention ob the Rights of Disabled People, (UNCRDP) it’s about time it was enshrined in UK law.

it’s time to remember and shout out about the fact that DISABLED LIVES MATTER as well.

I don’t know if we can make a change but we won’t if we don’t try.

Everybody needs to sign this petition.
