The UN Disability Convention

A new video has been launched to help raise awareness of rights for disabled people in Scotland.

Produced by the Equality and Human Rights Commission along with the Scottish Human Rights Commission, the video highlights the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

The UK ratified the convention, which was drafted by and for disabled people, in 2009. It compels the Scottish and UK governments to take action to ensure disabled people can enjoy their human rights.
