All eyes on disabled athletes in Rio
For the past few weeks, the world has been transfixed as disabled athletes competed for Paralympic glory in Rio. And with disability in the spotlight, the Games are a great way of raising awareness and improving attitudes.
We wanted to see how all disabled people – not just the athletes – emerge from the Paralympics as winners, so we did some research. We found that three quarters of disabled people think the London 2012 games improved attitudes about disability.
These results are definitely worthy of a gold medal! And thank you for being part of our team, because we wouldn’t be able to do this crucial research without your support.
