Young disabled people use video to make UN Convention accessible

Posted on July 18th, 2011 by Kathie

Six Whizz-Kidz Ambassadors set out to demystify the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People in a video explaining their own experiences of school and their busy social lives.

Two of the group interviewed the Minister for Disabled People Maria Miller for the video. Ms Miller said it was a privilege to speak to Lucy Davies, 19, and Josh Surgeoner, 15, and to contribute to the work they are doing to raise awareness of the UN Convention. She said: “We discussed a wide range of issues and I hope the interview will help stimulate further debate of these important issues.”
