Abstract

House of Lords, Equality Act 2010 and Disability Committee, HL Paper 117, Published 24 March 2016

There are over 11 million disabled people in the United Kingdom, and the number grows year by year. Disability affects us all—as disabled people ourselves, and as the carers, family, friends, employers, colleagues, and educators of disabled people—and it is the task of all of us to remove the barriers that prevent some from participating fully, and equally, in society.
