PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson has praised the contribution disabled people make to society.
Speaking on International Day of Persons with Disabilities he said the government’s disability strategy – Fulfilling Potential – includes a number of measures to support the contribution disabled people make to society.
He said: “After a summer that saw the Paralympic Games completely change the perception of disabled people across the country, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities is a great opportunity to celebrate the contribution that disabled people make to society.
“We are committed to the this year’s theme — removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all — and through our role models campaign and funding for disabled peoples user led organisations we can create this society.”
