Here is Livability CEO, Dave Webber, on what Livability hopes of the new government.
As the new government is established we hope that they will share our desire to ensure that the most vulnerable people in our society are cared for and protected.
We will continue to champion the rights of disabled people and hope that the incoming government will formulate policies which will create a fair and inclusive society for all including disabled people.
In particular we are eager to see the new government reduce barriers to independent living which the disabled people, we work with, often experience; including access to meaningful employment opportunities, tackling the shortage of accessible (social) housing and improvements in social care provision both locally and nationally for example.
We await to see what the next steps of the government are but welcome the opportunity to work with them over the coming years to improve the lives of disabled people across the country.
