STATES members have unanimously approved a long-awaited plan that will help improve the quality of life for disabled people and carers.
The Disability and Inclusion Strategy will see improved information being made available, the development of legislation for the prevention of discrimination and an extension to Guernsey of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.
It aims to change attitudes towards disabled people and carers so that they can be active and engaged socially, economically and culturally.
They also unanimously approved an amendment, led by Deputy Elis Bebb, which will see the budget for initial implementation being increased from £170,000 to £250,000.
Members have also approved plans for a joint Channel Islands financial services ombudsman.
