Being disabled in Britain is a review into disability inequality in Great Britain. It builds on the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s statutory five-yearly report on equality and human rights progress in England, Scotland and Wales.
The report includes chapters on six areas of life, including education, work, health, justice and participation in politics, looking at where there has been progress and where there are still serious issues to be tackled. It also looks at the experiences of those with different impairments and how these impact on people’s life chances.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission have also created a British Sign Language (BSL) video of the executive summary available here.
