The need for neurological status to become a protected characteristic

This video is taken from footage of the Labour Party Autism and Neurodiversity Manifesto Steering Group meeting at Labour Party Conference 2018.

The video explains the case for its call for ‘neurological status’ to become a protected characteristic under the UK’s Equality Act 2010.

  1. I am interested to know how this is progressing within the labour party and whether it has or can or will be linked with the Neurodiversity manifesto (I amy not have the name correct) I am a memeber of Witham CLP but not active in a physical way and do not plan to becomeactive within the CLP – but am able to support online.

    1. Hello, Andrew! We have produced the Labour Party Autism / Neurodiversity Manifesto, which is now being put to LP branches & CLPs (draft motion is set out on this website), along with trade unions (another draft motion for proposing the Manifesto is also on this site). Since February of this year we have launched Neurodivergent Labour, which is open to members of the Labour Party who are themselves neurodivergent, so if you are interested in getting involved, online, then please just let us know. We are working towards the founding AGM at the end of November… details will be posted on this site, too. best wishes 🙂
