Disabled people and coronavirus: We won't be forgotten

We’re putting a spotlight on the serious issues disabled people are facing right now. Join us in saying disabled people will not be forgotten.

1 in 4 disabled people feel forgotten by the government right now.

The Prime Minister must not forget disabled people

We are calling on the Prime Minister (PM) to not forget disability equality as lockdown is eased and the economy starts to recover.

We need a clear plan from government on how they will protect disabled people’s rights and needs through the pandemic and beyond.

​We contacted local MPs

We had a great response from you contacting your local MPs to raise awareness of the issues disabled people faced during lockdown.

Together we contacted over 570 MPs with our Disability Report.

Disabled people and coronavirus report

We have been talking to disabled people about their experiences of coronavirus and lockdown through our:

  • helpline
  • online community
  • services
  • research polling

Too often disabled people are the last to be thought of. But disabled people do not have the luxury of forgetting these everyday risks and challenges.
