Consultation description

Better working with disabled people: Fulfilling potential: Making it happen

The triennial review of Equality 2025 recommended that Equality 2025 be closed. It also recommended that advice to government on disability issues should be provided ‘by a method that will provide expertise supplemented by lived experience’. This consultation seeks views on how to do that and how best to involve disabled people at every stage of policy development.
