CSJ Disability Commission report: Now is the Time

Year of Publication: 

This year (2021) will mark 26 years since the Disability Discrimination Act and 11 years since the Equality Act passed into law. Despite this legislative change, progress towards greater equality between disabled and non-disabled people has been erratic and, in some areas, non-existent.

The Conservative Party made a manifesto commitment in the 2019 General Election to develop a disability strategy which, in the words of the Prime Minister, needs to be the “most ambitious and transformative endeavour for disabled people in a generation.”

In anticipation for the publication of the Strategy for Disabled People and to match the sentiment of the Prime Minister, the CSJ Disability Commission has published a report with equally ambitious and transformative recommendations across employment, education, housing, transport, and access to goods and services.
