The Independent Living in Scotland project (ILIS), with support and legal advice from the Scottish Universities Legal Network on Europe, has created a Statement of Principles outlining the key concerns about Brexit for disabled people in Scotland.

The statement is a broad and concise statement of principles but is also a collection of more specific policy asks – what ILIS want to see happen in relation to participation:

  • Disabled people having an equal voice in the Brexit debate;
  • Non-regression: safeguarding disabled people’s equality and human rights as we leave the EU;
  • Advancement: taking the opportunity to enhance disabled people’s equality and human rights and lastly maintaining funding for Disabled People’s Organisations.

The Statement of Principles can be viewed here and ILIS have hard copies available.

If you have any questions or comments about the statement feel free to get in touch with ILIS at susie@ilis.co.uk or 07910 373778.
