We launched a new report called Independent Living yesterday. It was covered by the BBC, Guardian and Daily Mail among others. Sarah also wrote a Guardian comment piece (photo courtesy of our own Charlie Tims).
New disability minister Anne McGuire gave her first proper speech since taking the job at the launch event. We'll try and get hold of some of the speeches and post them here as there were some very good ones.
The report follows on from our Disablism report of last year and argues that the benefits system should be overhauled to support and empower disabled people to design and deliver their own services.
