We have been making sure that disabled people’s human rights are recognised and promoted for many years. Recently Inclusion Scotland have been working with other Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations from across the UK on the examination by the United Nations (UN) Disability Committee of the UK’s compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (UNCRPD). Find out more about our work on human rights.
Many disabled people’s lives are scarred by poverty. The evidence suggests that due to austerity cuts and welfare “reforms” more disabled people are experiencing poverty.
But what is the true scale of the problem? Find out more about our work on poverty and social security.
Many disabled people want to work but the inflexibility of the workplace and difficulty accessing support can be a barrier to finding suitable employment. You can visit our We Can Work pages which has useful resources around employment and information about our internship programme for disabled people.
