Just Fair - devastating cumulative impact on disabled people of coalition's welfare "reforms" in human rights context
Dignity and Opportunity for All: Securing the rights of disabled people in the austerity era
Just Fair has set out the devastating cumulative impact on disabled people of the coalition's so called welfare reforms in the context of human rights. Their analysis and recommendations are also relevant to every one impacted by what is more accurately named welfare abolition since 2010.
TAP includes in our aims and objects Article 25 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.
