Defending Our Rights; Challenging Attitudes
Many thanks to all delegates who attended our regional events in June, we certainly had interesting discussions and feedback!
You’ll find below electronic copies of handouts and links to key documents that we referred to in our presentations. We have also explained how you can contribute to the UNCRDP review of UK and devolved Governments.
These provide updates on key policy areas we’ve been working on in the last few months.
Disability Wales along with other DPOs in the UK have submitted their response to the UN Committee’s List of Issues. The List of Issues shapes the way in which the UK as a whole, and Wales in particular in our case, can be held to account for how it treats disabled people.
We will have an opportunity to supplement our response and provide further evidence. If DPOs or individuals wish to submit evidence you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for us to collate your evidence and concerns.
We are looking into how individual DPOs may make their own submissions and we’ll keep you informed.

The latest DPOs report to the Committee is not yet public but we will add it here as soon as we can. More information on our trip to Geneva in March here.
We will return to Geneva in August to observe the examination of the UK Government on 23 August (3-6pm) and 24 August (10am-1pm). This is a public meeting and will be live streamed – we will post details of how to access this when we have the information.
