Key findings from Scope’s research into social care for disabled people

To understand how social care affects younger disabled people – and the impact of the funding crisis – we spoke to 500 disabled people aged 18-64 who use social care.

They told us they are waiting fourteen hours to go to the toilet, sleeping in their clothes, being unable to eat or wash and left socially isolated.

Over half of disabled people using social care (55 per cent) can’t get the support they need to live independently. Fewer than one in five disabled people (18 per cent) get the right social care.
