Inclusion London / Power Up events

Launch event: Operation Disabled Vote

6 – 8pm Thursday 27th November 2014

Part of the Our Election 2 Project from Inclusion London and the Alliance for Inclusive Education

Speakers: Baroness Tanni-Grey Thompson, Ros Wynne Jones (Daily Mirror Real Britain columnist), Simon Woolley (Operation Black Vote), Andy Greene (Disabled People Against Cuts), members of HF Mencap Safetynet People First and Ellen Clifford (Inclusion London).


Please join us for the launch of Operation Disabled Vote, an initiative which aims to encourage more Deaf and disabled people to register to vote and have their say at the 2015 General Election.

With austerity policies disproportionately impacting on disabled people and the burden of the cuts falling ever harder it is more important than ever that Deaf and disabled people get our voices heard.

However, many Deaf and disabled people feel excluded and marginalised from mainstream politics without information or support they need to be included. People affected by disability are estimated to make up 1 in 3 of the population yet many Deaf and disabled people are also asking whether any of the main parties actually cares about our interests.


We need politicians to prioritise the issues that are important to Deaf and disabled people.


That means we need to make our voter power felt.


Come to hear what we have planned through the Our Election 2 project and how you can get involved, pick up accessible election materials for your organisation or group and help us celebrate the launch of Operation Disabled Vote with our supporters the Daily Mirror. Disabled People Against Cuts will also be sharing their plans in the run up to the election.

Drinks and nibbles will be served.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. For all other access requests and to book a place please contact

Sponsored by Unite the Union and #Mass1.
