Where: Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Southampton, Plymouth, Newcastle and London
When: The events take place around England, starting on 14th September 2016 in Birmingham and ending on 5th October 2016 in London
DR UK are holding a series of free events around England, in which all people living with health conditions/disability can influence the Shadow Report that we will be writing to inform the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Committee.
In 2017 the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities will conduct its first examination of the UK, looking at the steps it has taken to implement the UNCRPD. The Committee, the majority of whom are disabled people, is a body of experts, nominated and elected by governments.
We want to hear from disabled people and people with long-term health conditions about how you think the UK is doing in upholding our rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
All venues are accessible, however please let us know of any access needs you may have in advance.
If you wish to attend and strengthen the voice of disabled people, please contact Events@disabilityrightsuk.org
