The Covid-19 pandemic and response has infringed disabled people’s human rights.

As part of Plaid Cymru’s commitment to carrying out a Wales only Covid Enquiry, this will be further investigated.

Wales has taken backward steps due to the pandemic, creating new difficulties and gaps in public services for disabled people.

We agree with Welsh Disabled People’s Organisations and believe that implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People into domestic Law, as a matter of urgency, will help in counteracting this.

Local authorities have a large part to play in realising this vision. Plaid Cymru led local authorities and councillors will closely look at ways the provisions of the convention can be applied at a local level. We will ensure that equality impact assessments are held in a timely and effective manner in developing service provisions and when changes to the built environment are proposed.

As part of our Co-operation Agreement with the Welsh Government, we will ensure that the rights of disabled people are strengthened, and inequalities tackled.
