News: Read our new report about disability in the UK in 2012

10/09/2012

Did you know that almost 1 in 5 people in the UK have a disability? Or that only 17% of disabled people were born with a disability, as the majority of disabled people acquire their disability later in life?

Our brand new report, 'Disability in the United Kingdom 2012 Facts and Figures' looks at the key facts surrounding disability in the UK today.

The disability rights movement has come a long way, in terms of attitudes to disability, access to buildings, transport and employment.

But what is life actually like for disabled people in the UK in 2012?

The result of a comprehensive search of the latest statistics on all aspects of disability, our report covers areas such as employment, health and education.

You can read the full report here.
