New report highlights injustice in relation to disability in Britain

"Being disabled in Britain: A journey less equal" highlights the many disadvantages and inequalities still faced by disabled people, including those with mental health problems. The report is designed to help UK and devolved governments improve law and policy to ensure services meet the needs of disabled people, and to support disability groups by strengthening their case for change.

The report builds on the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s statutory five-yearly report on equality and human rights progress in England, Scotland and Wales, Is Britain Fairer?.

In response to the report, Paul Spencer, Policy and Campaigns Manager at Mind said: "It’s unacceptable that in this day and age, disabled people still face so many disadvantages across so many different areas of their lives compared to non-disabled people."
