Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance (ROFA) is an alliance of Disabled people and Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) who have joined together to defend disabled people’s rights and campaign for an inclusive society. ROFA fights for equality for Disabled people in England and works with sister organisations across the UK in the tradition of the international disability movement. We base our work on the social model of disability, human and civil rights in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
