The Equality and Human Rights website have produced a downloadable report that is about the UK's work on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

It sets out the United Nations' main concerns about disability rights in the UK. It lists over 80 recommendations for action by the UK Government and the devolved governments of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The CRPD is an international legal agreement about the human rights of disabled people.

In August 2017, the UK’s progress against the convention was reviewed by a group of international experts in Geneva, called the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The committee monitors how well the convention is being put into practice through reviews that take place about every four years.
