The pandemic has highlighted many disparities in terms of health, employment and access
to services which have exacerbated the negative impact for people with disabilities. Westminster Insight’s Disability Digital Conference
explores the latest policy, strategies and best practice
to create a more accessible and inclusive society.
Gain a first-hand update on the National Strategy for Disabled People
from Hannah Rignell, Deputy Director, Disability Unit, Cabinet Office.
Join the conversation with leading Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs)
including Disability Rights UK, Disability Positive
and the Disability Benefits Consortium
advocating to widen access and transform service provision with an inclusive approach.
We will examine strategies to increase areas of co-production, by prioritising the voice of service users and their carers.
We will focus on pathways to enhance independent living,
through assistive technologies
implemented by Dimensions UK. Essex County Council
will share practical insights on effective commissioning to wide ranging needs; and you'll hear useful advice from Sense,
on how to mitigate the impact of isolation,
provide mental health support and promote social inclusion.
