Disability

Purpose of the group

  • To act as a channel of communication between the Scottish Parliament, disabled people and organisations working or supporting disabled people.
  • To provide opportunities for Members of the Scottish Parliament to learn about needs of disabled people and the barriers individuals face excluding them from performing an active role within society.
  • To increase awareness and raise the profile of rights for disabled people.
  • To put disability on the agenda of the Scottish Parliament.
