Disability

The Specialist Disability Network is made up of 115 centres experienced in working with disabled people.

Disabled people make up over half of the total offline population and disabled people can face additional barriers to getting online, including accessibility, financial constraints, and lack of specialist support. Our disability network offers the specialist help and support that disabled people need to take advantage of the benefits that the online world can offer.

25% of disabled adults have never used the internet, compared to 10.2% of the entire UK population
Disabled adults make up 50% of the 0.9 million lapsed internet users (those who last used the internet over 3 months ago).
Disabled people are significantly less likely than non-disabled people to have internet access (65% compared to 88%).
