Disability Equality Scotland is hosting a Disability Consultation Workshop with the Scottish Government's Coronavirus Legislation Team. This team is working on the Covid Recovery Bill as part of the Government’s Programme for Government 2021 to 2022, which can be viewed here:
This Bill is currently being consulted on until 9 November 2021 – details are available at this website: https://www.gov.scot/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-legislation/
The Deputy First Minister leads on the development of the Bill and has committed to including the voices of disabled people in the consultation process. Their team is actively considering how best to take forward that commitment and, to that end, we are hosting this virtual Disability Consultation Workshop event in order to hear the lived experience of disabled people.
Feel free to submit questions to us in advance via the box below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can ask them live during the session via the chat box. To ensure that disabled people attending have maximum opportunity to contribute, the maximum number of spaces for this workshop will be 35.
This webinar will be supported by live captioning, as well as a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter. For information on Zoom's accessibility features, as well as guidance on how to interact using Zoom Meetings, please visit our website on www.disabilityequality.scot/events/accessibility.

The Webinar will take place on Tuesday 26 October, from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
