Young Voices celebrate UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities

3 December 2013

Our Young Voices campaigners are marking International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December with a new video highlighting the work they do around the world.

The video, which is also being shown at a special event tomorrow at the UN headquarters in New York, was produced on the theme of ‘Break barriers, open doors: for an inclusive society and development for all’.

We will be publishing our new report, Making Rights a Reality (PDF), put together by Young Voices from across the globe. It reports on how governments are implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and includes young people's recommendations of what they think needs to change.

Leonard Cheshire Disability and Young Voices will also be represented at a Bond event at the UK Parliament in Westminster to mark the day.
