Disabled people must be part of the Covid-19 inquiry

Act now to make sure disabled people aren't left out of next year's inquiry.

Sign the petition

Did you know that 6 out of 10 people who have died from Covid-19 are disabled?

Next year there’ll be a public inquiry into how the UK handled the pandemic, and we're calling for disabled people and their families to be at the heart of the inquiry.

From difficulties accessing food to reduced care, the pandemic has exposed a lot of existing inequalities and new issues for disabled people.

But it's not too late. Together, we can change things.

By signing our petition now, you'll be helping make sure the country learns from this crisis.

“When the pandemic hit last year, the day centre closed, and we were left to take on all of Azhar’s care needs without any support. We were worried about who would fill the caring void if we caught Covid-19.”

Saeed, parent of Azhar
