Event Summary

Over 1 in 5 people in the UK are disabled*. Join us online this November to address the next steps towards disability inclusion. What more can public service providers, businesses and employers do to improve accessibility and improve experiences for disabled people?

We will hear from disabled people, and renowned leaders in the charity sector, on what is needed from government to make services accessible and drive sustainable change. What reforms will help to tackle pressures from the increasing cost of living, challenges with welfare and employment, and the ongoing social care crisis?

We will set out the actions that businesses can take to understand disabled customers’ experiences and improve the accessibility of their products and services. We will share guidance for making buildings and venues more accessible. We will focus on disability rights in the workplace, and how employment can drive inclusion.

We will look at ways to ensure that the needs of disabled people are taken into account when planning and delivering public services. A series of quick-fire case studies will spotlight best practice in areas such as transport, sustainability, emergency planning, leisure, sport and democratic services.

You will hear from award-winning public and private sector organisations who have created fully accessible and inclusive environments for all.
