Disability: a UK Perspective

Less than fully-abled people are everywhere, likely facing similar problems as the go about their lives. My guess is that some governments do better than others at working to counter these problems.

Over in the UK, they have published a comprehensive strategy to tackle the issues faced by their disabled people.

Since this is quite a large load of information to manage in one bite, I decided to look at one part of it: a segment examining the challenges of shopping for the disabled.

As a physically disabled person, of course I was thinking about the challenges that I face, such as stairs and reaching things on shelves out of my reach. This report takes it a bit further, for example, discussing technology gaps that exist for people shopping online.

The UK government should be applauded for facing up to these problems, and strategically working to make life a bit more convenient for their disabled citizens.

I am just a guy with a disease called adrenomyeloneuropathy. I want other guys with the disease to see the good parts of disability. Not the gloom. Not the doom. Make sense?
