Creating a fairer Britain
One year on from the report of our original inquiry 'Hidden in plain sight' and the Commission launches its follow up report 'Out in the open: a manifesto for change' which show that many agencies are already taking significant steps to identify and eliminate disability related harassment. Together they show progress, individually and collectively, towards making a real difference.
This 'Manifesto for change' sets out our revised recommendations for action over the next five years. These have been developed following consultation with a large number of government, national and local bodies who have helped refine and nuance the recommendations to make sure that they work, and to ensure that those organisations own them.
The issue of disability-related harassment might be 'out in the open' but it is, most certainly, not yet sorted.
You can find both reports and the formal responses from government on these web pages:
