S5W-04497: Johann Lamont (Glasgow)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will launch or support a national campaign to raise awareness of disability and tackle the associated stigma.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 15 November 2016

We recognise that disabled people in Scotland continue to face negative attitudes, stigma and discrimination. We will raise awareness of disability and disabling barriers through the next phase of the One Scotland Campaign - which we will launch in 2017. This will focus on the barriers to inclusion that disabled people face.
