Wednesday 19th July – Lobby of Parliament for Independent Living
The crisis in social care keeps hitting the headlines but the focus is often dominated by older people’s care instead of violations to Disabled people’s right to independent living. Theresa May has promised a consultation on social care later in the year but Disabled people battling cuts to essential daily support need concrete action now. At the last Prime Minister’s Questions before the Summer recess, DPAC independent living campaigners will lobby our MPs to defend our rights to dignity and choice.
Assemble outside House of Commons entrance from 11am.
We are also asking Disabled people to write to their MPs about their experiences of social care cuts and the detrimental impact on our lives.
