Did you realise that disabled people are TWICE as likely to be unemployed than non-disabled people?

Are you aware that there are currently 1.8 million disabled people with unmet housing needs or that disabled people between the ages of 18-65 represent one third of social care users?

Papworth Trust’s annual report ‘Disability in the UK: Facts and Figures 2018’ provides up-to-date facts on disability.

So what is the report?

This report outlines the realities of disability in Papworth Trust's key policy areas – work, housing and social care – along with chapters on specific impairments and how they vary amongst social-economic categories. They have also added a new chapter on carers, exploring the challenges of delivering unpaid care services.

The information provided is designed to inform, initiate and encourage debate around key issues affecting disabled people.
