What does Brexit Mean for People with Disabilities?

Posted by / June 30, 2016 / Categories: Industry News, Inside Recliners

This article published in Posability magazine outlines the way in which the rights of disabled people might be affected by Brexit. The overriding message is that the UK has existing legislation that matches that of the EU, and it has also ratified many other international treaties concerning the rights of disabled people, so immediate rights will not be affected. However, it does make the point that the UK is no longer obliged to keep pace with directives issued by Brussels, and people with disabilities will have to hope the UK government continues to advance the rights of people with disabilities themselves.

It also mentions that the option to challenge UK laws, on the grounds that they no longer comply with the European Charter of Fundamental Rights will no longer be applicable.
As with many other things right now, it seems that it’s a case of wait and see what happens, and hoping that the rights of disabled people continue to be prioritised and advanced by our future governments.
