Calling for Labour to adopt policy on neurodiversity

Submitted by Janine on 03 October 2021 at 10:59

At 2021 Labour Party conference, I moved a 'reference back' of the National Policy Forum report, due to its failure to include any policy on neurodiversity, despite a detailed submission being made to the policy forum process. This is what I said in the one minute allocated. Delegates passed the reference back.
