There is now a dedicated service to get you the UK’s most important disability-related news stories straight to your in box each week. Its called Disability News Service and is run by John Pring, an experienced journalist who has been reporting on disability issues for more than 15 years.

The aim is to provide a useful resource for disabled people, disability rights campaigners and disability organisations in the UK. You simply sign up for a subscription to access the information.

Stories covered by the service so far include the fight to improve disabled people’s protection from discrimination in the new equality bill; calls from disability rights campaigners to strengthen the law on assisted suicide; the resignations of Baroness Campbell and Sir Bert Massie from the Equality and Human Rights Commission; and in-depth reports on hate crime, the government’s mental health strategy and the launch of the Building the National Care Service white paper.

If you can wait, all the stories also appear, 3 months later, at the website - great for quotes, research and updating your knowledge.
