The UK Government is drawing up a new National Strategy for Disabled People, and is now asking for public opinion to help inform its decisions.

The Disability Unit in the Cabinet Office is working with government colleagues, disabled people, disabled people’s organisations, charities and businesses to develop and deliver the strategy.

Planned for publication this spring, the strategy will make practical changes to policies in a bid to improve the experiences of disabled people in the UK.

A statement from the Cabinet Office’s Disability Unit said: “We want to place the lived experiences of disabled people at the centre of our approach, as well as views from people across the country including those caring for and related to disabled people, as well as the general public.”

The survey can be found on the Citizen Space website, with the survey staying open until April.

However, views shared by 13 February will inform the drawing up of the strategy itself, rather than just the implementation of the plans.
