Over half of the British public admitted to feeling awkward or uncomfortable talking to a disabled person because they are worried they may say something offensive by mistake, a survey has found.
Disability charity Scope, who are behind the survey, revealed young people were more likely to feel awkward around the disabled.
One fifth of 18-34 year olds went so far as to admit they had avoided to talking to a disabled person because they were unsure how to communicate with them.
Nearly half of the British public (43%) said they do not personally know anyone who is disabled.
However, 33% said getting to know someone in a wheelchair or an amputee would make them feel more confident when meeting a disabled person.
