What Counts as Disability in the UK

What is Disability?

what is disability and what is not? Disability as a legal and social issue has an enormous impact on how we live our lives, and how we spend our tax money: what matters most to us as individuals? The main types of illness and disability in the UK, and their legal rights, come from three interlinked categories: “medical” illness, “social incapacity” (including such medical incapacity as old age and disability), and “disability”. The definition of disability is far from straightforward, and this piece of work sets out the legal and social issues that matter most to us, whether you are a young adult with an illness or condition that interferes with your daily life, or a senior citizen who has an illness or disability caused by a past injury, or who is permanently unfit to work.

In a country where many people live close to or alongside disabilities, we expect there to be more awareness of their existence, and we also expect the government to have more in-depth understanding of and greater access to the lives of more people with disabilities.

As well as the law, there are many other factors that can be used to determine if a person is disabled. This article looks at definitions of disability in the UK, and examples of what those definitions are and how they relate to the real people with disabilities.
