The National Disability Strategy Review – Call for Evidence

Last year, on the 28th July 2021, we were invited to respond to the new National Disability Strategy. The strategy committed to some ambitious solutions to "...improve the everyday lives of disabled people in areas like housing, transport jobs and education."

Now, a year on, have you noticed any signs that these proposed developments are in action?

The Women and Equalities Committee is scrutinising the implementation and further development of the strategy. The committee wants to hear from as many people as possible, especially disabled people.

They are asking for responses to several questions including, "What progress has been made so far?" and "How effectively is the government communicating with disabled people and involving them in the implementation and further development of the strategy?"

If you want to have your say personally, then please respond to their call for evidence by Sunday 24th July. Tou do not have to respond to every question given. Alternatively, if you have any comments or experiences that you would like us to include in our submission then please email them to portia.thorman@smauk.org.uk by Friday 15th July.
