The Disability Unit at the Government 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 your views and know more about your experiences.

This survey will ask about your life experiences either as a disabled person, a carer or parent or as someone who has an interest in disability issues.

Many people have had big changes in their lives as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and there will be an opportunity at the end of the survey to state if your life has changed notably due to COVID-19, and in what ways. However, please answer other questions thinking about yourself, your own experiences and your current situation.

The survey will be open until 23 April 2021. Responses received before 28 February 2021 will inform the development of the National Strategy, while those received after this date will be used to inform its delivery.

This form should take you around 20 to 30 minutes to complete and can be saved as you progress. You will be routed through the questionnaire based on the answers you provide.

The survey, together with papers in easy read, a survey for people with disabilities together with a survey for carers can be found at this link

Important notes for those using screen readers and other assistive technology:

  • An asterisk (*) indicates a required question and we suggest you check information below the question using the arrow keys.
  • The experience will be better on a computer rather than a mobile device.
  • It is recommend using a grid with maps for questions with multiple radio buttons as this is the only option for the Voice Control user.
