Labour's Disability Equality Roadshow comes to Sheffield

Labour's Disability Equality Roadshow comes to Sheffield

Meet Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions, Debbie Abrahams ( pictured ), at Labour’s Roadshow on 20th April from 5.30 to 8pm at the United Reform Church, 16 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, S1 2JB.

The aim of the Disability Equality Roadshow is for Labour to hear directly from Deaf and disabled people, carers and stakeholders which policies Labour should develop to best defend and extend your rights. Labour wants to listen to your views on improving social security, reducing the disability employment gap, ensuring access to suitable housing and education, improving the provision of care and supporting carers.

Labour promises to ensure that the UK upholds its obligations under the UN convention on persons with disabilities. Labour is committed to people-powered politics and believes that future social security policy should be co-produced with Deaf and disabled people, carers and service providers. Labour wants to transform the social security system, based on the principles of dignity, independence and support.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
