Planning for Disability History Month

Despite the challenges COVID-19 has brought to our daily lives both within the workplace and wider society our Scottish Disabled Members’ Committee is continuing to work, where reasonably practicable, on the workplan it agreed at its annual policy seminar just three weeks before we went into lockdown!

As part of this, the committee is promoting Disability History Month, an annual event held between 22 November and 22 December. We are planning an online campaign for this event, and as part of this, we are looking for case studies of how your branch or employer has supported Disability History Month previously. If you have a story to share please email

In January 2019 UNISON published an organising guide to all branches across the UK on how to organise events for this important event. Click here or search Disability History Month at
