Coronavirus pandemic: Social and economic impact on Disabled parents
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Disabled parents
Women's Budget Group - March 2021
The coronavirus pandemic has compounded the different financial, social, and health barriers that Disabled people already faced, resulting in Disabled people being disproportionately affected by the virus and restrictions in the UK. This report shows that Disabled parents have lost income and work at higher rates than non-disabled parents. As a result, Disabled mothers in particular have struggled with their finances and wellbeing.
