The European Network on Independent Living – ENIL prepared a briefing for our members on the impact of Brexit on the rights of disabled people in the UK, with a focus on Independent Living, and with suggested action points for DPOs. This is one of the outcomes of the Brexit workshop, organised on 20th March in cooperation with the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) and the European Disability Forum (EDF), with the financial support of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust. The aim of the workshop was to look at the impact Brexit is likely to have on the rights of disabled people and the work of disabled people’s organisations (DPOs), and to discuss how disabled people and their organisations can have a stronger voice in the in the ongoing Brexit negotiations. A joint report from the workshop will be available by the end of the month.
