The Every Vote Counts campaign has the support of all five of the main UK political parties: the Conservatives, Greens, Labour, Liberals and UKIP.

United Response has been in touch with the office of each of the party leaders to ask for a brief video interview.

As the campaign proper for the UK General Election begins in earnest, we’re asking each leader what they think about our Every Vote Counts campaign.

We’ve asked all the leaders why they are in favour of more people with learning disabilities taking part in the democratic process, as well as what their party is doing to help disabled people.

First up: The Green Party

In the first of these interviews, Natalie Bennett, the leader of the Green Party in England and Wales, told us why she thinks disabled people need to get involved. She also spoke about Green Party policy on disability, the disabled group within the party and why she supports Every Vote Counts.

Take a look at the interview here:
