Celebrate Disabled People Day
As many people will know on Friday 3 December it will be International Day of Disabled People in the United Kindom there are 10, 800,000 disabled people. Their are 33% of people over the age of 50 Years that may have a disability (Oops must not give my age away). There are 6,700,000 disabled people of working age (18 - 65) in the United KingdomThere are 5 - 7% disabled people who are wheelchair users and finally their are 770,000 disabled children in the UK. Who is celebrating the 3 December as a member of the Scope Campaign Network or just a forum member. It would be good of any Campaign Network member and read any e newsletter before the festive season to see how members celebrated the day. Like me I have arranged for my Member of Parliament, GLA Members and Councillors to visit high street shops in raising the awareness of the barriers for us disabled people and those with mobility impairments and to round the day off we are having a real celebration in International food sharing as well as during the day taking part in already recorded disabled people on the radio at 11.30am
