United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) – The The report of the Essex Autonomy project (due to be published on 6 June) will recommend changes that are required to bring us to a situation of compliance and Sandra will précis all of this and suggest what sort of practice changes this may be ‘pointing towards’.
