New language factsheet

02 December 2020

Language is an important part of the Social Model of Disability and it is essential that you are considering the language you are using when working with Disabled people. The language of the social model rejects negative or medical language and replaces it with more positive language that sees us as human beings.

We now have a factsheet available on our website which discusses in more detail about why we use particular language from the view of the social model. Find out more here: https://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/social-model-disability-language
