Disability Live!

Like many other organisations, UNISON has had to cancel many of its conferences and meetings as a result of COVID-19.

But the UK’s biggest union has democracy at its heart and still wants its members to be involved.

With this in mind, UNISON’s Disabled members have organised a series of virtual events in place of their usual conference online – Disability Live! – 19 to 24 October.

There’s an exciting schedule covering a range of topics including a keynote session on learning from the impact of Covid 19 on disabled people, the right to homeworking as a reasonable adjustment, disabled members organising, Black disabled workers and UNISON’s new national care service campaign.

These events are only open to UNISON members. To attend Disability Live! you must be a disabled member of UNISON. This is in line with UNISON’s commitment to self-organisation for under-represented groups.In order to make Disability Live! as accessible as possible, please let us know if there are any adjustments you will need to allow you to take part in a virtual event.To register your interest in attending please email conferences@unison.co.uk as follows:
