Being disabled in Britain: a journey less equal – Report from Equality and Human Rights Commission

From the Commission: Our landmark review into disability inequality in Britain launched this week. Looking across all areas of life, including education, work, health, justice and accessibility, and the experiences of those with different impairments, it found that disabled people are being left behind in society.

We want this report to be used by UK and devolved governments to make improvements to law and policies, by local government to ensure services meet disabled people’s needs, and by disability groups to strengthen their case for change. 

Our Chair, David Isaac, said:

“Now is the time for a new national focus on the rights of the 13 million disabled people who live in Britain. They must have the same rights, opportunities and respect as other citizens”.
