New UK Chair for Campaign for a Fair Society
James Elder-Woodward OBE, a distinguished campaigner and activist, is to take over as chair of the UK Campaign for a Fair Society steering group.
Born with cerebral palsy, Jim has had life-long experience of disability, not only as a health and social service user, but also as a service provider, planner and researcher.
Jim comments: ‘I’m honoured to be offered the position but realise the task ahead will be onerous – in the light of the continuous onslaught of disproportionate cuts to disabled people’s incomes and support systems which this Government has and will continue to make in the near future. However, I’m looking forward to working with colleagues and supporters of the Campaign to make the UK a fairer and more inclusive society.’
