The Paralympics were the games which were meant to change our views of people with disabilities. But 100 days since they ended, a new survey carried out by Scope shows that discrimination continues.
While Paralympians themselves continue to enjoy celebrity status, two thirds of people living with disabilities feel that the games have done nothing to improve how they are treated and spoken to.
- 72% said that the Paralympics had a positive impact on attitudes towards the disabled in general
- 53% said they still regularly experience discrimination
- 67% said that the Paralympics have done nothing to improve the way they are spoken to
