Rethinking disability policy

Viewpoint that reviews some aspects of disability policy since the early 1990s before making a detailed assessment of the current polices being introduced by the Coalition Government.

Themes discussed include:

- Welfare reform
- Personalisation policies and adult social care
- The political and economic context of disability policy
- The changes disabled people should be campaigning for.

The author concludes with a call for the disabled people’s movement to move out of the disability policy agenda and engage with broader political and economic debates and developments.
