A Manifesto for Inclusive Change: General Election 2019
We are in a politically complex and critical time for protecting and enhancing the future of human and disability rights. This comes amid the context of an ever-maturing technological and digital transformation. The skills, infrastructure, and policies needed to ensure these challenges are approached fairly must be considered in a way that ensures disabled people are not left behind.
We are in a period of immense change. Brexit, skills gaps and shortages in many key sectors, developing built environment and multi-sector infrastructures, climate change and the environment, social care, technology and innovation. Not only does every single disabled person have a contribution to make to the way society responds to these changes, it is a legal and human right that they have the opportunity to do so.
The businesses we work with believe in this contribution disabled people make. They also believe Government has the power to either further enable or inhibit businesses to push the disability inclusion agenda in the UK forward. Our manifesto states the actions we want to see the next Government take to ensure the role businesses play in disabled people’s lives are enhanced, not inhibited.
