International Day of Disabled People is an annual celebration that happens on 3rd December and in 2021 it is “Fighting for rights in the post-COVID era”.
 
In the face of the COVID pandemic, today should be used to recognise that disabled people are among the most affected populations.
 
In instances where marginalisation, discrimination, vulnerability and exploitation are everyday factors for many people, the increased risk of poor outcomes have been magnified due to reduced access to routine health care and rehabilitation services, increased social isolation, poorly tailored public health messaging, inadequately constructed mental health services, and a lack of emergency preparedness for disabled people.
 
WECIL are part of the movement to make changes which bring equality, diversity and safety to disabled people across the South West.
