Withdraw the National Disability Strategy and start again!- BBC News interview Monday 1st March

Bristol Disability Equality Forum Manager Laura Welti will be interviewed on BBC News this Monday (March 1st) about our joint campaign, in partnership with National Federation of the Blind UK, calling upon the government to withdraw its survey consultation about a new National Disability Strategy and start over again.


We’re doing this because there are so many problems with the survey as it is at the moment.


The letter of petition we have sent to the Prime Minister and the Minister for Disabled people, Health and Work, is signed by 112 organisations (including our own) and details some of the reasons why the government needs to start all over again, so it can consult properly with Disabled people’s organisations (including those like Deaf organisations, that represent a linguistic minority) and work with Disabled people in drawing up the survey so it is fully accessible to Disabled people, regardless of why they are categorised as such.


The interview can be seen live, 10.40am on the BBC News channel and BBC2
