National Strategy for Disabled People in 2020

Last updated 5 days ago

We will publish a National Strategy for Disabled People before the end of 2020. This will look at ways to improve the benefits system, opportunities and access for disabled people in terms of housing, education, transport and jobs.

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to publish a National Strategy for Disabled People in 2020.
  • On 2 April 2020 the Cabinet Office’s Disability Unit said:

    “As the coronavirus pandemic is the current priority for the government, we are reviewing our plans for the development of the strategy”.

    A further update in December 2020 announced that the aim had shifted to publication of the strategy in spring 2021.

  • The strategy was not published before the end of 2020 so this policy is ‘broken’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
