We will adopt the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People into UK law to assure accessibility for all. This was ratified by the UK in 2009, but never introduced into law.

We will achieve this by working with the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, disabled people’s organisations, disabled people’s charities and disabled people themselves throughout the UK.

The voices of disabled people will be at core of this policy to ensure the full enjoyment by persons with disabilities in daily life with dignity, their human rights, and fundamental freedoms from poverty, social exclusion, discrimination, and negligence.
