Physical Disabilities

In Britain there are over 11 million people with a long-term illness, impairment or disability. Physical disabilities affect different people in many different forms. Physical disabilities can be temporary or permanent and may affect many parts of the body.


Shockingly almost a quarter of people with physical disabilities say they do not have choice and control over their daily lives. Furthermore a third of people with physical disabilities experience difficulties accessing public services - and this is where we at People First are here to help.

We at People First promote that people with any form of physical disability should be supported to communicate, given choice and control over their own lives and treated with respect. We offer advocacy support to help people access the services they need by listening to what it is people want and helping them be listened to.
