Disability Rights UK article: Government’s new Disability Strategy “disappointingly thing” 

In reaction to the publication of the Government’s, National Disability Strategy, Disability Rights UK CEO Kamran Mallick said:

“Disabled people have been waiting a long time for a Strategy that has meat on its bones.

“Despite being 120 pages long, the Strategy is disappointingly thin on immediate actions, medium-term plans and the details of longer term investment.

“The Strategy has insufficient concrete measures to address the current inequalities that Disabled people experience in living standards and life chances.

“There are scant plans and timescales on how to bring about vastly needed improvements to benefits, housing, social care, jobs, education, transport, and equitable access to wider society.

“While we welcome the Government’s recognition that Disabled people are much less likely than non-Disabled people to have a job, qualifications, to own a home, or to live in an accessible home, we haven’t been given the bold plans that will fix these huge issues.”

The above is taken as a quote from a more in-depth article.
