Influencing government

Politicians have a lot of power to improve the lives of disabled people. They decide how much we spend on vital care for people, how employment law works, what benefits people get and how accessible new buildings are.

To achieve positive change, we work with MPs, peers, Welsh Assembly Members and Members of the Scottish Parliament from all parties.

At Westminster, we make sure politicians understand the issues that matter to disabled people. We also work with civil servants to talk about the detail of government policy and to push for better support for disabled people.

We also work with other groups like the Care and Support Alliance and the Disability Benefits Consortium.
