Your Rights, Your Future Survey 2016: Gathering the views of Disabled People in Scotland

Published: August 26, 2016

Gathering Disabled People’s views on their experiences of their human rights in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (UNCRPD). 

We want to hear from D/deaf and disabled people about how your rights are, or are not, being realised.

The United Nations (UN) Committee on the Rights of Disabled People in Geneva has invited civil society organisations to submit a report on how the UK and Scottish governments are performing on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (or the disability convention).

Inclusion Scotland and our partners are gathering the views of disabled people on progress made by the UK and Scottish governments on the articles, or rights, in the UNCRPD so that we can submit a civil society “shadow” report on behalf of disabled people living in Scotland. We will ask the UN committee to make recommendations to the UK and Scottish Governments based on the views we have gathered from disabled people in Scotland.

The Survey Monkey can be found here:
We have already heard what disabled people thought were the most important issues that needed improving in Scotland and why, in 2014-15. The Committee is now asking us to report after it paused its previous examination then.

We would like to know if your experiences of this list of rights have improved, got worse, or stayed the same, over the last few years. Please answer the questions in this short survey and we will include your responses in our report to the United Nations in December.
