The Scottish Government has a clear aim: for disabled people to have the same equality and human rights as non-disabled people. This means disabled people having the same freedom, dignity, choice and control over their lives as everyone else, with rights to practical assistance and support at home, at work and in the wider community. However, for many disabled people living in Scotland, this is still a long way off being a reality.

The Scottish Government would like to hear your views on this draft delivery plan. There are a number of ways that you can respond:

  • You can respond online from the link at the bottom of this page.
  • You can use the Word version of the questionnaire available here, and email it to catherine.hewit@scotland.gsi.gov.uk.
  • You can also respond in writing, by sending your response to: Catherine Hewit, Scottish Government Equality Unit, Area 3H South, Victoria Quay, Edinburgh, EH6 6QQ.

Please note the consultation started on Tuesday 8 September 2015 and the deadline will be Monday 4 January 2016.
