    The Disability Action Plan open consultation is aimed at anyone with an interest in the action the Government will take during 2023 and 2024 to improve the lives of disabled people. Disabled people and disabled people’s organisations may be particularly interested but anyone, including any organisations or individuals, may respond.

    The proposals include initiatives like promoting life-changing technology for disabled people, mandating disability awareness training for taxi drivers, implementing autism-friendly programmes in cultural and heritage sites, and fostering a more inclusive society in the long run.

    The consultation runs for 12 weeks and respondents can comment on all or part of it.

    Alternative accessible formats of the consultation are available (or available to request, for Braille, hard copy and audio CD), and include: full-screen BSL video / BSL inset video, Welsh translation, Easy Read, large print, web accessible PDF and HTML, Braille, hard copy, and audio CD. This is in addition to an online version of the consultation questions, hosted by CitizenSpace which was chosen in part on the basis of its high levels of accessibility.

    The consultation is open until 6 October 2023.
