Disability and Other Equality Groups

A recent survey of people with disabilities found the following:

  1. 63% of respondents reported that they were not in work, and 91% of those were not seeking employment - well above national averages.
  2. Over 30% of respondents stated that they found it difficult or very difficult to manage on their current income.
  3. Nearly half of disabled people in work said that they had experienced discrimination in the workplace.
  4. A significant majority of respondents (78%) felt that they faced barriers which limited their life chances.
  5. Almost half of those surveyed stated that, because of their disability, their level of academic attainment took longer than non-disabled students, and over half claimed to have had their courses or choice of subjects restricted.
