Freedom Day but Not For Everyone

Disabled people have been routinely forgotten during the pandemic, and are still some of the hardest hit. New Scope research shows only 2 per cent of disabled people feel safe about the lifting of restrictions today, on what’s being dubbed "Freedom Day".

It’s not right that some disabled people are yet again being left behind by Government. The Government needs to make sure that the most at-risk disabled people can get the support they need to stay safe.

To the disabled people, the shielders, the should-have-been-shielders, the parents, the carers and families. We’re still with you. 

💻  You can get support on a range of issues on https://www.scope.org.uk/coronavirus-information/

☎️  You can speak to our helpline advisers by calling 0808 800 3333. We are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm. Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 6pm.



💜  We know it’s been an unbelievably hard year and a half. But there has never been a more important time for disabled people and allies to come together for disability equality.

Together, we’ll keep campaigning for disability equality throughout the pandemic and beyond.
