The new Executive of Disability Labour was elected on 8 September 2018. Our manifesto was:

Our 12 point plan for Disability Labour.

The legal handbook for all Labour Party structures.

We have adopted the handbook, ‘Equality Act 2010 (disability) and the Labour Party’, and will prioritise promoting it’s adoption and use throughout the Party.

We encourage all Party structures to pass the motion supporting the handbook.

About our logo.

Before our 2018 AGM, a group of us set about thinking what logo we would want to represent us. Fran, Kathy and Nico came up with something a bit brilliant… Integrating Spoon Theory into the Labour rose. But how would we do that? Barb solved it. She found a beautiful spoon whose handle transformed into a rose. Sophie drafted the artwork and we all got to comment on it. So, now, just by looking at our logo we get a reminder to look after ourselves!

The Disability Labour logo: a spoon with a handle that turns into a rose at the end with the word Disability above and Labour below.
