A Fairer Scotland for Disabled People – the Scottish Government’s Delivery Plan to 2021 for the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has five long-term ambitions aimed at transforming the lives of disabled people in Scotland and ensuring that their human rights are realised.
The plan sets out 93 actions which will be taken forward during the current parliamentary term, and includes halving the employment gap for disabled people; setting a target to increase the percentage of disabled people in the public sector workforce; and increasing supply of wheelchair accessible housing.
The Access to Elected Office Fund will continue beyond the local government elections in 2017 to support potential candidates for the Scottish Parliament elections in 2021.
