Help shape a national strategy for disabled people

A national strategy for disabled people is being developed. And the Government is asking for lived experiences and views on what’s needed to improve lives.

A survey asking about the lived experiences of people with disabilities – as well as parents and carers – is now open. It asks about:

  • The barriers you face
  • Your living environment
  • Your employment opportunities
  • Accessibility of public transport and green spaces
  • How you connect with friends, family and others
  • How the Covid-19 pandemic has affected you

About the survey

It should take 20-30 minutes to do.

The consultation is open until Friday 23 April 2021.

  • Responses received before 13 February 2021 will help develop the new strategy due to be published in the spring.
  • After that date, your responses will shape the way the plans are delivered.

You can complete it online. There are British Sign Language videos too.

Take the survey

If you use screen readers/assistive technology

An asterisk (*) means you must answer the question. Check the information below the question using the arrow keys.

The experience will be better on a computer rather than a mobile device.

It’s recommended to use a grid with maps for questions with multiple radio buttons as this is the only option for the Voice Control user.
