The Disability Unit at the Cabinet Office is developing a National Strategy for Disabled People. Publication is planned for Spring 2021.

To help the government with understanding the barriers that disabled people face and what it may need to focus upon to improve the lives of disabled people, they need to hear about the views of people with disabilities and know more about their experiences.

This survey asks disabled people about their life experiences either as a disabled person, a carer or parent or as someone who has an interest in disability issues.

The survey recognises that many people have had big changes in their lives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and there is an opportunity at the end of the survey for individuals to state if their life has changed notably due to COVID-19, and in what ways. The respondent is asked to answer other questions thinking about themselves, their own experiences and their current situation.

The survey will be open until 23 April 2021.

Responses received before 13 February 2021 will inform the development of the National Strategy, while those received after this date used to inform its delivery.
