Future Is Gold 2019

On 27 May, I took part in a panel discussion at Autistic UK's 'The Future is Gold' event. One question panellists were asked was 'Why am I not able to get a free travel pass for use on all buses and trains on Merseyside? I have Asperger's and don't fit into any category.'

Report, TUC Disabled Workers’ Committee, 17 April 2018

1. TUC Disabled Workers' Conference, 24-25 May, Bournemouth

  • Motions - The Committee agreed to to support all motions and amendments, except:
    • Unison's amendment to Unite's motion on Universal Credit (oppose) - the motion opposes UC; the amendment wants to change this to reforming it
    • POA's motion on mental health discrimination (oppose) - the Committee can not support the Time To Change campaign, as it is run by Mind, which collaborates with the DWP
    • Community's motion on sustainable supported employment (decision deferred) - the motion proposes promoting a particular company as 'best practice' for the employment of disabled people - we need more information before endorsing this
