  • Happy Human Rights Day!


    The DLA is a signatory to the BIHR letter to the Telegraph published on the occasion of Human Rights Day (10th December).  Signed by 163 organisations, the letter calls on “those with power to stand with us to respect human rights laws”.

    The very sad death of an outstanding equality campaigner


    Caroline Gooding, DLA Vice Chair, died on 19th July.  Her obituary, published in the Guardian, summarises very briefly her important work over many years to secure equality rights for disabled people.  Caroline was a major contributor to the work of DLA and for all of us she will be very much missed.  DLA is planning to find suitable ways later this year to honour Caroline's achievements.


    Thank you Caroline - tribute
