Unequal impact: Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the impact on people with protected characteristics
Business Disability Forum is a not-for-profit membership organisation which exists to transform the life chances of disabled people. As a membership organisation working with over 300 businesses, we are uniquely equipped do this by bringing business leaders, disabled people, and Government together to understand what needs to change to improve the life opportunities and experiences of disabled people in employment, economic growth, and society more widely.
Our submission focusses on the impact of the Government’s response to Coronavirus and how disabled people and their lives have been impacted by some temporary policies and communications that the Government have implemented. We also give key recommendations for what can be changed in three weeks’ time and six months’ time.
