UKDHM examined how the leaders of the disabled peoples movement managed to change the way disability was seen as a personal burden to a human rights issue through using the social model of disability from 1970 to the present and the lessons we learn from this.
The NEU is committed to challenging discrimination against disabled people and to campaigning for disability rights for its members and students. We work to influence policies at school, local and national levels relating to both working conditions and rights for our members and for the young people we work with. We work with other unions and organisations who share our aims.
TH&C district is keen to increase the involvement and activity of disabled members in the work of the Union. If you would like to be more involved or require some advice or information, please contact us via email email@example.com

Trade unions have played a big part in the progress made in improving the lives of Britain’s eleven million disabled people, particularly in the area of employment, until that progress was halted by the policies of the Coalition government that took office in 2010. Trade unions have since played an important part in resisting the impact of those policies.
