Disabled campaigners demand talks with May over inaction on damning UN human rights report

DISABILITY rights campaigners have demanded talks with Prime Minister Theresa May over the “human catastrophe” in which millions of disabled people’s lives are getting worse.

The call follows the UN damning report six months ago on the government’s implementation of the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD).

Last August’s report made a number of recommendations, which a coalition of disabled rights organisations that gave evidence to the UN says have not been implemented by the government.

These include a failure to implement the 2010 Equality Act, the lack of joined-up working across Britain’s nations and the continuing employment-opportunities gap that disabled people face.
