Disability campaigner Lord Rix dies

Lord Rix was a tireless camapigner for the rights of disabled peopleAlong with many other disability organisations and campaigners in the UK, the staff, trustees and volunteers at AbilityNet were very sad to hear the news of the death of Lord Rix. His tireless campaigning helped inspire positive changes in the lives of many disabled people and his work with Mencap and other organisations was a cornerstone for much of what has been achieved by the disability movement.

Our thoughts are with his family and we know that his legacy will continue through the work of every organisation that supports and works with disabled people.
