The Equalities and Human Rights Committee of the Scottish Parliament is considering the Scottish Government’s proposed budget for the financial year 2017 to 2018. Over the course of its work programme, the Committee will consider many issues regarding equality policy and the various protected characteristics set out under the Equality Act 2010, such as age, gender, sexual orientation and so on.

On the is occasion the Committee has decided to focus this call for evidence on the experience of disabled people and British Sign Language (BSL) users.

Specifically, the Scottish Government would like to hear from disabled people and BSL users in Scotland about your experience applying to a Scottish university, or attending a Scottish university.

The Committee would also welcome input from families, carers, groups or organisations which seeks to promote and support the rights of disabled people and BSL users in Scottish society, as well as anyone else with an interest in this issue.
