NAHT members join the TUC Disabled Workers' Conference in 2024

Every year, the TUC hosts a series of equality conferences, which focus on supporting the advancement of issues that disproportionally impact minority groups. Third up was the TUC Disabled Workers' Conference in London (23 to 24 May 2024), the theme of which this year was #nothingaboutuswithoutus. NAHT was represented by three NAHT members from across our regions, who discussed and supported calls across a plethora of areas put to the conference, all of which disproportionately impact disabled workers.

Motion themes put to the conference included:

  • Embedding the Social Model of Disability in workplaces
  • Tackling ableism
  • Access to reasonable adjustments
  • Accessible rail travel
  • Benefits reform


The event included addresses from TUC General Secretary, Paul Novak; Chair of the TUC’s Disabled Workers' Committee, Martyn Gwyther; and Shadow Minister for Disabled People, Vicky Foxcroft MP. Delegates also had the opportunity to join fringe discussions and wider union networking sessions.

The conference was another huge success and our delegates left feeling enthused and eager to continue engagement with the wider union movement on support for disabled workers.
