Working towards Real rights, Real access and Real inclusion

Our CEO, Mike Smith, has written an article for International Day of Disabled People. This year the theme is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID 19 World”. In the article Mike talks about:

  • the impact of COVID 19,
  • COVID 19 being the tip of the iceberg (of the problems disabled people experience),
  • a critique of UK disability equality law and the lack of progress towards achieving disability equality,
  • a discussion on if there is any good news, and how disabled people can make a difference,
  • a summary of current challenges locally in Tower Hamlets,
  • moving forward, and how we deliver these international aims in Tower Hamlets.
