United Nations report on the UK and the rights of people with disabilities






The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities says that governments should make sure that disabled citizens have enough money to have healthcare, homes and jobs and be full members of their communities.


The United Kingdom government signed up to this Convention to say they would do this.


Many disabled people and organisations from the UK told the United Nations that the government had policies that took away money and rights from disabled people. The United Nations investigated what they said and wrote a report on their findings in October 2016. This is attached. There is a summary of their findings from Page 14 onwards.
