Disability Labour Welcomes the Election of a Labour Government

Disability Labour celebrates the Labour Party’s overwhelming victory, heralding a commitment to transformative governance.

The Labour Party’s resounding win reflects the nation’s appetite for a new approach to leadership. We extend a warm welcome to both the re-elected MPs and those who will be entering the House of Commons for the first time. We urge all MPs to collaborate with us and extend our congratulations on your success. We particularly welcome MPs who sought Disability Labour’s endorsement, such as Emma Foody and Stephen Kinnock. Our support is at your disposal to help you understand the intricacies of disability issues.

As we applaud Labour’s success, we reiterate our appeals to the incoming government:

  • To promptly reverse the punitive policies implemented by the Conservative government. The disabled community cannot afford to wait for Labour to carry out these reversals.
  • To fulfill its pledge of co-production with Disabled individuals across all government sectors, especially to prevent further deaths being caused by the Department of Work and Pensions.
  • To incorporate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) into UK law.
  • To acknowledge the significance of the lived experience of disabled people.
  • To commit to ensuring that disability-related hate crimes are addressed with the same severity as other hate crimes.
