This draft plan sets out our aim to removing barriers and enabling disabled people to enjoy equal access to citizenship. Over 50 commitments will help us deliver the four outcomes and three cross cutting themes that will bring about change to disabled people. We will consider the views of disabled people on this approach and finalise our plan in spring 2016

5. Taking Next steps

This delivery plan shows how we will move forward to make UNCRPD a reality for disabled people in Scotland. It shows the Scottish Government's planned approach, our key outcomes and the commitments which will help us make progress towards these outcomes.

The Scottish Government is determined to make real, long term progress towards making sure disabled people enjoy the same human rights as other people.

We are committed to working with disabled people and their organisations, and with services now and in the future, so that the Government can meet disabled people's needs.

The Scottish Government will reduce the inequalities and social injustice experienced by disabled people; it will support them to be active citizens in Scotland.
