    By Katharine Macy

    Today the LDDA exec were joined by Ed Davey to discuss the ways we can move forward with increasing accessibility both internally in the party and externally. We've provided advice to be circulated to local parties and are looking forward to seeing that as the first step of many. Ed spoke to us about working with HQ, improving candidate accessibility and pushing forward with being better as a party. He's also asked us to look into how disabled people specifically are being impacted by the Living Crisis. If you have anything you'd like to flag to the executive, feel free to contact us on social media or email our chair at chair@disabilitylibdems.org.uk

    We saw last year what a huge boost it gave to the party getting two new excellent MPs elected in Parliamentary by-elections. It's good for their constituents and also good for the party's prospects across the whole country.

    We've also seen this month how Conservative MPs have failed to do what our country needs - to remove Boris Johnson from 10 Downing Street.

    It's Carers Week - a chance to recognise, celebrate and, most of all, listen to the stories of unpaid carers.

    People looking after their loved ones are doing a remarkable job in difficult circumstances. As a carer for most of my life - first for my mum, then for my gran, and now for my disabled son, John - this is something I know all too well.

    We all have our own special memories of the Queen's Jubilees. For me, they have spanned my entire life. So it is with great pleasure that I will join the entire nation in celebrating seventy years of Her Majesty's reign - on this Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

    In her coronation speech, the Queen said: "Throughout all my life, and with all my heart, I shall strive to be worthy of your trust." I think the whole country will agree that our Queen has more than fulfilled her promises made to our nation.

    Since Spring Conference, most members will have been focused on the Local Elections which took place in many parts of the country - and rightly so: the hard work has paid off, with some truly fantastic gains made from both the Conservatives and Labour. Particular mention should go to our amazing Chief Steward at Conference, Mike Ross, who is now the Leader of Hull Council! Massive congratulations to Mike and the whole team.

  • LGBT History talk: Bernard Greaves
    Article: May 13, 2022

    This year as part of marking International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia we will be having a history talk.

    We can only understand where we are now in LGBT liberation through understanding where we have been, and there are striking parallels between the battles of the past and the present.
