This document sets out how government departments are working towards disability equality by 2025. The document shows how 14 themes combine to make up the vision of disability equality. The themes are: children's outcomes; communications; discrimination; employment; health; housing; independent living; justice system; leisure, social and cultural activities; living standards; participation; post-19 education and training participation; social care; transport. The achievements regarding each theme from 2005-2009 are set out alongside the next steps to be taken by various government departments in order to achieve substantive progress towards disability equality by 2025. The next steps in the strategy include: transfer of incapacity benefit customers to employment support allowance from 2010, with increased work-related support; modernising the disabled facilities grant programme, which provides help towards the cost of providing adaptations to accommodation to enable disabled and older people to continue to live independently in their own homes; and greater involvement of service users in the transformation of social care and personal budgets.
