‘The Paralympic Effect’

December 13, 2012

Three-quarters of Britons feel more positive about the role of disabled people following the Paralympics, according to a BBC survey.

Some 79% of 2,400 non-disabled people questioned also said they thought wider perceptions of disability had improved.

But the figure fell to 65% among the 600 people with disabilities surveyed, as Jenny Hill reports.

The BBC have also interviewed two of my favourite disabled people/campaigners about these results- Kaliya Franklin and Lisa Egan.
