ROBERT Halfon MP is named as one of the 100 most influential people with a disability or impairment

Shaw Trust has announced the launch of Power 100: The most influential people in Britain with a disability or impairment and on the list is Robert Halfon MP.

The list honoures the achievements of disabled people and a range of people from across the UK have been ranked for their invaluable work and contribution to the British society.

Chief Executive of Shaw Trust, Roy O’Shaughnessy, says:

‘Power 100 is a celebration of British diversity and the achievements of people with a disability or health impairment across many professions, including business, culture, politics and sport. Robert Halfon is one of a select group of leading politicians who were nominated by the public to be included on the list.

Shaw Trust is privileged to sponsor the publication for a second year and we hope it inspires more young disabled people to realise their full potential. Power 100 drives home the message that aspiration and ambition can increasingly be without limits for all abilities and backgrounds.’

Robert Halfon says:

‘Recognising the most influential disabled people in the United Kingdom is tremendously important as it shows that everyone can achieve what they want in life. I would like to congratulate everyone on the list and thank them for their immense contribution to our society.

This Government is committed to help people with disabilities and aims to halve the employment gap between disabled and non-disabled people and I am very pleased to see that the Government is working hard to achieve this.’
