Mental Capacity Amendment Bill: Act now to prevent the government from weakening our human rights protections
We are holding a consultation event to talk about the proposed amendments to the Mental Capacity Act and to discuss our next steps. DDPOs, Self-advocacy groups, people with learning difficulties or other Disabled people who are interested are welcome to attend.
The Access to Work policy team want to learn about your experiences of AtW Workplace Assessments. They want to ask you if AtW Workplace Assessments are useful to people who are deaf or have a hearing loss, and how you think they can be improved for Deaf people.
A cross-party group of MPs believe that social media companies and the Government have failed disabled users and must act urgently. The Petitions Committee have launched a consultation on their draft recommendations for action. Fill out their survey to make sure your views are heard.
We joined DPAC, ROFA and other DDPOs for a week of action around the ‘Global Disability Summit’ hosted by the UK Government. An International Solidarity Summit was organised to coincide with the event, to highlight the hypocrisy of the UK government, who are themselves in breach of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
We note the global disability summit being held in London at the end of July. We are strongly in favour of international support that improves the lives of Deaf and Disabled people across the world. We also have a number of concerns about the summit.
