UK Parliament Human Rights Committee: The Summary of the Report on Implementation of the Right of Disabled People to Independent Living

This report is a easy-read summary of the UK Parliament's Joint Committee on Human Rights report on Article 19 of the UN CRPD, 'Implementation of the Right of Disabled People to Independent Living' | February 2011

Article 19 is all about living independently and being included in the community. Because the UK has agreed to these rules, the governments across the UK should be making sure that all disabled people, including people with learning disabilities, have the same rights as everyone else to: live in the community, have the same choices, be fully included and take part in community, choose where to live, choose who to live with and other choices.
