Writing and speaking to disabled people

Do you want your Liberal Democrat message to appeal to as many voters in your area as possible?

Did you know that there are currently around 13.3 million disabled people in the UK.

  • 7 per cent of children are disabled
  • 18 per cent of working age adults are disabled
  • 44 per cent of pension age adults are disabled

When you add in all the people who may not be disabled themselves but who are a paid or unpaid carer and those people who have a disabled family, that amounts to a sizable proportion of the electorate.

Using the right language and terminology could help you to reach those people better and show that you care.

The Liberal Democrat Disability Association has published a useful booklet giving guidance on what to say and how to say it so that you are better able to appeal to disabled people and their families.

Costing a paltry £2 per copy, our Guide may give your Campaign Literature a winning edge.
