The Disability Union

Why Join

The Disability Union works to protect and enhance the rights of disabled people across the United Kingdom so that we can become included in all aspects of society. As a democratic organisation run by and for our members, we believe that inclusion is a human right and that there must be nothing about us, without us. Every member has a say in what our goals and priorities are and we pursue these through a combination of education, political activism and community organising.

There are dozens of reasons to join a union, but ultimately, it comes down to protecting your rights. The Disability Union’s objective is to ensure all disabled people have their rights represented and their voice heard in government debate and decision-making.

When you join The Disability Union, you’ll become part of a diverse and varied community of disabled people, just like you. Not only will you have our support on workplace issues such as fair pay for all and a healthy working environment; you’ll also have access to a number of benefits such as legal advice, training and education that we provide to all members of The Disability Union.

It doesn’t cost a lot to become a member of the only union in the UK dedicated to the welfare of disabled people. Use the cost calculator to see what you might pay each month, and become the latest member of The Disability Union.
