Stevenson Supports International Day Of Disabled People

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has shown his support for International Day of Disabled People, which takes places on 3rd December.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr Stevenson said:

“I hope that the day help increase the understanding of the issues around disabilities and draw attention to the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities as well as increasing the awareness of the gains for everybody if disabled persons are integrated into all aspects of political, social, economic and cultural life and raising money for resources for persons with disabilities.

“We must remember that persons with disabilities around the world make up approximately 10% of the population but sadly, even where disability laws are in place, its effectiveness can be held back by negative attitudes towards disabled persons.

“Persons with disabilities deserve equal rights: social, cultural, and political amongst many other important rights they need to live fairly in society.”
