The Inter-departmental Ministerial Group (IMG) on Disability was recently set up by Alliance members the Office for Disability Issues (ODI). It is chaired by the Minister of State for Disabled People and brings together Ministers from right across Government with the aim of encouraging and stimulating progress to ensure disabled people are included in society and have opportunities to realize their aspirations.
The Group has agreed that the UK will launch a ‘Day of Activity’ on Thursday 4th September 2014, which will challenge local communities to demonstrate what they are doing to make their area inclusive and accessible for disabled people.
