Disability Policy

 
To make disability policy better for disabled people we have been working on:
 
Anti means that you are against something.
Discrimination is being treated badly or unfairly because you are different. Disabled people still receive a lot of discrimination.
So anti-discrimination policy means rules to stop discrimination against disabled people

 

 
The European Union is trying to make the anti-discrimination policy a law.
The European Union is a group of countries whose governments work together.

 

 
We think that the policy is a great first step to putting a stop to discrimination.
But we also think that some changes need to be made to the policy before it becomes a law.

 

 
2. European Disability Strategy 
 
The European Disability Strategy is a plan that says how service providers will follow the UN CRPD.
The UN CRPD is the UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It says that disabled people have the same rights as everyone else. It also says what governments should do to make this happen.
We have said what we think about the strategy in an official paper to try and make it better.

 

 
3. Council of Europe Action Plan on Disability

 

The Council of Europe Action Plan on Disability is a plan on how to make things better for disabled people in Europe.
The Action Plan lasts from 2006 to 2015.
EASPD helps the Council of Europe with its work.
We made the Easy Read version of the Action Plan. Follow this link, if you want to read it.
We also wrote an official paper on what we thought about the Action Plan, and how the Action Plan can be improved.
