2009 annual report from the Office for Disability Issues. The report outlines the work done by the Government in 2009 towards disability equality. Legislative commitments during the period covered by this report include the ratification of the United Nations convention on the rights of disabled people, as well as progress towards an Equality act that will strengthen and streamline discrimination law. Action was also taken to promote independent living for disabled peoples such as the founding of the Independent living scrutiny group and increased funding for the Disabled facilities grant. Work also continued towards the Right to control, part of the Welfare reform act, that will give disabled people greater choice and control over the funding and services they receive to go about their daily lives.
