COVID-19 UK Inquiry: WinVisible is one of the disabled-led organisations who together won that the UK Inquiry must address the disproportionate impact of COVID,and the COVID measures on disabled people/women/of colour, whose deaths were not inevitable.  We all demonstrated outside the UK Inquiry on 9 October when Kamran Mallick of Disability Rights UK gave evidence.  WinVisible’s statement to the UK Inquiry is here.

Scotland and Wales have their own investigations alongside the UK Inquiry.
