2012: The Year of Disability?

In the last issue of Enable for 2012, which is available in distribution points now, we’ve taken a look at what this year has meant for disability.

The past 12 months have been, without a doubt, among the most significant for disabled people in Britain and the wider world for many years. With global events celebrating disability, campaigners stepping up to speak out and disabled people achieving incredible things, 2012 is one year we won’t forget.

Of course, it hasn’t all been rosy – there have been reports of terrible injustices, budget cuts and poor decisions which have made the lives of disabled people tough too. But, with all the positive progress that has been made, there is a glimmer of hope that people might just be starting to take notice of the challenges which disabled people face and of the many possibilities that are out there for the 10 million lives affected by disability in this country.

So what has this year meant for you? Let us know in the comments section below…
