Labour’s vision and Scope’s End The Awkward campaign

With the general election about 12 months away, Paul Carter and Helen Dolphin hear from the shadow disability minister Kate Green and discuss what Labour’s policies would mean for disabled voters. They also ask if Scope’s End The Awkward campaign will encourage non-disabled people to feel more comfortable around disabled people. Joining them are Agnes Fletcher, who is a member of Scope’s board of trustees and who was a member of a taskforce commissioned by Labour to investigate breaking the link between disability and poverty, the activist and access consultant Tracey Proudlock and John Kelly, who has been touring with Graeae’s production of The Threepenny Opera and who is the artistic director of the arts festival DAiSY Fest.
