Removing Barriers And Promoting Independence For Young Disabled People

EDM number 758 in 2012-13, proposed by David Anderson on 21/11/2012.
Categorised under the topic of Disability discrimination.

That this House welcomes the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Young Disabled People's report Removing barriers, promoting independence; is deeply concerned that young disabled people still face challenges using public transport, finding and retaining employment, accessing higher education, finding accommodation and living independently and accessing leisure facilities; notes that Government, businesses and public bodies need to liaise and consult with young disabled people on improving their standard of living; expresses the hope that the recommendations put forward in the report will be implemented; calls for Government policies like Access to Work and the Disabled Students' Allowance to be better promoted and in some cases expanded; and further calls on businesses and Government to recognise the unique needs of young disabled people and their wish to live full independent lives like their non-disabled peers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
