Disability & Inclusion Discussion Paper

We are delighted that the Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Sarah Newton MP, has recorded a short video to help launch this important policy discussion paper on disability and inclusion. Watch the video and download the paper and associated documents using the links below.

As always, discussions will be more greatly informed if groups are able to include members and non-members from different age groups and with personal experience of living with a variety of disabilities. Why not use this opportunity to reach out to new voters in your constituency by asking if you can hold your discussion at a local sheltered housing facility or disability day-care centre? Let people know that you are interested in them and want to understand their perspective.

We want to ensure that as many associations and as many members are able to engage in this vital and wide-ranging discussion. Some groups may wish to discuss the questions over the course of two meetings. The closing date for this brief is therefore 1 January 2019.

Please send your responses to the paper, via CPF.Papers@conservatives.com, using the response form below.

A summary of responses to this paper will be sent to the Secretary of State for Work & Pensions, the Rt Hon Esther McVey MP; Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Sarah Newton MP; CPF Chairman, George Freeman MP; Conservative Vice-Chairman for Policy, Chris Skidmore MP; and the Prime Minister’s Policy Unit within a month of the closing date for submissions.

The next paper will be on Global Britain, one of the five areas covered by the Prime Minister’s Policy Commission, and will be published at the start of January. Thank you. We look forward to hearing your ideas on this important topic.

The "short version" below excludes graphics and background material, for those who prefer only the core discussion material.

Please advertise the CPF paper on your website and social media pages. It would be great if you could post a photo online of your meeting too.
