Richard Hawkes, Chief Executive of Scope and Paralympian Dave Clarke, who captained the Blind Football team have spoken about the changes they have seen in attitudes after the Paralympic Games.
Dave Clarke said that the games are not responsible for changing attitudes, "I think it's very naive to expect the Paralympics to solve the ills of discrimination and abuse."
Richard Hawkes said that small changes have been seen recently in the attitudes towards those with disabilities, "disabled people are telling us and parents with young disabled children are telling us that they are seeing small things.
"They're seeing people starting to do things in a different way. It might be lots of very small things but people are reporting overwhelmingly that they think there was that opportunity to really bring about some fundamental change."
