The United Nations has been told more must be done to protect the rights of disabled people in Scotland.
It comes after the UN warned that UK government welfare reforms had led to «grave and systematic» violations of disabled people’s human rights.
A new report says both the UK and Scottish governments need to take urgent action to allow disabled people to access all their rights.
The report has been submitted to the UN by the Scottish Human Rights Commission (SHRC) and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
It said human rights should be embedded into any new laws or practices.
Both commissions monitor the implementation of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), in Scotland.
Their report said improvements in access to housing, education, health, law, advocacy and money were needed to ensure disabled people could live independently with dignity.
