Lockdown tougher for disabled people due to inaccessible homes says YouGov poll

New research published has found that inaccessible housing made lockdown significantly harder for many disabled UK adults.

A YouGov poll commissioned by housing association Habinteg revealed that of those disabled people surveyed, their wellbeing during lockdown was three times more likely to have been damaged by lack of access in the home (21% v 6%) when compared to non-disabled people.

Meanwhile, over two in five were unable to fully use their bathroom or kitchen without assistance (22% v 23%).
