Glasgow Disability Alliance has released its manifesto calling for Scotland’s political parties to urgently address disabled people’s rights and experiences of inequality.

“Poverty, cuts to vital services, spiralling unemployment and acute isolation are among the worst impacts hitting disabled people hardest, and eroding basic rights since long before the pandemic: we are calling for a suite of actions urgently needed to halt further regression in rights and equality, and ensure disabled people are never again left behind when crisis hits.” – Tressa Burke, Glasgow Disability Alliance CEO.
