SNP publish accessible manifestos

Written by


 The SNP has today published a series of accessible manifestos - in line with a campaign by the One in Five group to make politics more accessible for disabled people and those with sensory impairments.

 The accessible manifestos published today by the party include Large Print, BSL with Audio and Subtitles and Braille versions.

 Commenting, SNP Business Convener Derek Mackay said:

 “I am very pleased that the SNP has today published accessible versions of our manifesto.  This is a move which organisations like the One in Five campaign have long called for and it is right that we have taken this on board.

 “We are deeply committed to ensuring politics is as accessible as possible – holding Scotland’s first disabled member’s conference earlier this year to help address the underrepresentation of disabled people in politics and the SNP in government has invested in a new fund to support disabled candidates in putting themselves forward for election.

 “Our manifesto sets out our ambitious vision to keep Scotland moving forward – and I am delighted this positive message will be as accessible to as many people as possible.”

 Notes: The accessible manifestos are published here:
