UKDPC is a member of Disabled Peoples' International (DPI). DPI is a global network of national organisations or assemblies of disabled people, established to promote human rights of disabled people through full participation, equality of opportunity and development. The International Committee of UKDPC provides the working link with DPI.
The International Committee (IC) cooperates with disabled people's organisations (DPOs) in the South to increase the voice of disabled people in development cooperation, as well as furthering international work among UK DPOs.
Together with colleagues throughout the world the IC has lobbied for and now promotes the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). Members of the IC are also actively engaged with DPI Europe, a regional grouping of DPI.
The IC is funded by Action on Disability and Development and works in partnership to strengthen our mutual goal of building the capacity of Southern DPOs.
