The Life Opportunities Survey explores disability in Great Britain in terms of the social barriers to participation that people experience across a range of 'life areas', including work, education and training, and transport. Findings from the survey are used by the Department for Work and Pensions to understand more about barriers adults experience, and help inform the development of policy for disabled people in Great Britain. This infographic presents a summary of the top two barriers (for example, cost) experienced by working age adults surveyed, comparing the experience of Adults with and without impairing (for example, loss of sight). Full details can be seen in the full Life Opportunities Survey - understanding disability Wave Two Part II report.
