We are taking a phased approach to publishing the Disability Strategy. This ensures we can continue to work together with disabled people to develop and deliver an effective and practical strategy which makes a real difference to the lives of disabled people.

Phase 1: in September we will publish a summary of responses to “Fulfilling Potential”, a summary of decisions already made, actions already planned, and activities already under way. Alongside this, we will outline our next steps based upon the issues and ideas disabled people have told us about. This will include our strategic narrative, the priority areas for further action, specific next steps, and how we will continue to work with disabled people to deliver positive outcomes.

Phase 2: in the autumn we will publish an analytical document drawing on statistics and research, to explore the nature of disability in the UK today.

Phase 3: following from these, and continuing to draw on joint working with disabled people, we will publish a further strategic document and action plan in the new year.
