The Crazy Truth

Humanity is largely missing out on the VALUE of one billion people living with a disability.

Key Fact

People with disabilities are:

  • 50% less likely to have job (WHO)
  • Two times more likely to be living in poverty (Equality and Human Rights Commission)
  • Three times more likely to have no qualifications than a person without a disability. (Equality and Human Rights Commission)
  • 1 billion people with a disability is the equivalent to disregarding a potential market the size of US, Brazil, Indonesia and Pakistan – combined – a market worth US$8 trillion globally when you combine family and friends
