Disability Rights UK Campaigns
- I Can Make It Project - This campaign aims to lower the gap in employment between disabled people and non-disabled people.This will be done using existing spending by businesses and local government to make new jobs.
- Stop Disability Hate Crime - To truly tackle hate crime there needs to be an increase in the number of crimes, and incidents, that are reported. We have the resources to help you do this.

- Equally ours - Equally Ours aims to help everyone understand how human rights benefit all of us in the UK, every day, in very practical ways; that they are an important part of our shared heritage.
- Proud strong and visible - The goal of this project was to facilitate the implementation of Article 19 (Living independently and being included in the community) of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) by the Member States and the European Union. The project was led by the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) with Disability Rights UK as one of the project partners. It finished in 2014 but DR UK is a partner of ENIL and continues to support its aims.
