Today, DPAC went to Parliament to lobby MPs about the funding of social care and independent living as part of their Week of Action
The funding crisis in social care is having a very real and detrimental impact on Disabled people’s ability to live and take part in the community and the gap between the life chances of Disabled and non-Disabled people is widening. Read more about it here
The police was not initially allowing DPAC members into Parliament and they were held for a while in a gated area before making their way to the lobby area
While there, they decided to occupy the area, as they did a few years ago, and they received the support of MPs like Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Caroline Lucas and Bartley among others.
The event was well covered by the media, and you can see below some photos of the event
