I would argue that Wellness and Inclusion can be the two themes which social policy needs to focus on to achieved a positive future for disabled people and everything. For me, wellness is about supporting people not to go backwards to their journeys of life while inclusion is about supporting people to move forward.
In the context I have produced a manifesto of what I feel the government should do to improve life for disabled people and others which can shown here. Covering 15 topics with 75 recommendations, the manifesto contains a wide range of real suggestions which takes into account the economic climate.
I would welcome feedback on what you think as I slowly try to get this endorsed by a number of organisations.
