Call for evidence for National Disability Strategy inquiry in multiple formats

PA Pool National Disability StrategyMPs on the Women and Equalities Select Committee have launched a new inquiry into how the Government’s National Disability Strategy is working, and how the Strategy might develop in the future.

They would like to hear the views and experiences of the public and interested groups as part of their inquiry, and they especially want to hear from as many disabled people as possible.

More information about the inquiry and how to submit your views is available in multiple formats (including audio, British Sign Language and EasyRead) here: committees.parliament.uk/committee/328/women-and-equalities-committee/news/171030/call-for-evidence-for-national-disability-strategy-inquiry-in-multiple-formats

Among other topics, the Committee is seeking views on:

  • What progress has been made on the Strategy so far
  • How effectively the Government is communicating with disabled people
  • Inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities and autism
  • How the needs of disabled people can be reflected in the post-pandemic recovery

The deadline for sending your views to the Committee is Sunday 24 July.
