It encourages activists to set up alliances with organisations of disabled people and to support their campaigns and actions at local level.
The Manifesto is about recognising Britain’s ten million disabled people as citizens with equal rights and supporting disabled people to play a full part in work and society. It sets out the policies needed to achieve this in employment, social care, transport, politics, arts and culture, and in social security. It is a tool to help trade unionists and others to resist government policies that hit disabled people badly.
