Britain was a different place for disabled people in 2000. The Disability Rights Commission was set up to change culture in England, Scotland and Wales and put disabled people where they belong, in the mainstream – and that’s exactly what we’ve done.

And from October 2007 we start a new journey, merging with the Commission for Racial Equality and the Equal Opportunities Commission, to become the Commission for Equality and Human Rights.

You can download our final DRC Annual Review, learning narratives and watch short films illustrating some of our many campaigns. Enjoy!
