The Labour Party has a strong track record in disability rights. In government, we worked to extend rights for disabled people, and remove the barriers they face in all aspects of life, from employment to public services.
Under David Cameron, rights for disabled people are under threat. The cost-of-living crisis is being felt acutely by disabled people. The unfair bedroom tax is hitting disabled people hardest and hate crime against disabled people is at worrying levels.
Labour will tackle this head on. We will abolish the bedroom tax, take tougher action on hate crime, and ensure disabled people are able to fully participate in society.
We are determined to change the rhetoric around disability, celebrating the contribution disabled people make to society, not demeaning them.
Disability Labour plays a crucial role in promoting the participation of disabled people within the Labour Party, and campaigning to break down the barriers they face.
