The Women and Equalities Committee is calling for evidence for the National Disability Strategy
The Women and Equalities Committee is scrutinising the implementation and further development of the Government’s National Disability Strategy, which was published in July 2021. The Committee wants to hear from as many disabled people as possible.
The Committee would like to hear your views on the following questions. They want everyone’s voices to be heard in Parliament.
The committee is asking these questions on the National Disability Strategy:
- How was the National Disability Strategy developed? How have stakeholder contributions informed the strategy?
- How will the National Disability Strategy help disabled people to enjoy equal living standards and life opportunities to those without disabilities?
- What progress has been made on the strategy so far? How quickly can some of the short-term goals be met?
- How effectively is the Government communicating with disabled people and involving them in the implementation and further development of the strategy?
- What progress has been made on the Disability Unit’s review into the way the Government engages with disabled people?
- How well are the goals in the strategy being funded and measured for success?
- Are there any specific groups that will be supported well, or supported badly, by the strategy?
They have produced feedback questionnaires in accessible formats: text, audio, British Sign Language and EasyRead.
You don’t have to answer all of the questions. You can respond on behalf of an organisation, or as an individual. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 24 July 2022.Learn more and submit your evidence
