United Nations urged to act over UK Government’s unacceptable dismissal of its damning report on disability abuses

In 2015 the UN launched an investigation into allegations that Westminster welfare reforms have led to “grave or systematic violations” of disabled people’s human rights – with the UK the first country to be investigated in this way.

Its report, published last week, found austerity policies had led to “systematic violations” of the rights of people with disabilities, with changes to benefits disproportionately affecting this group.

The UK’s Tory party didn’t like the findings and are now trying to avoid implementing the 11 recommendations contained within the report.
