International Day of People with Disabilities focusses on after the Covid pandemic

On December 3 this year, during the annual celebration of people with disabilities, the 2021 theme is ‘Fighting for rights in the post-COVID era.”

People with disabilities have been some of the most affected by the pandemic, so the day focusses on the support that they need, and makes sure they are seen, heard, and not left behind as we as a society focus on recovery.

Paul Perkin, the CEO of leading neurodisability charity British Home, spoke to Helena about the day, hidden disabilities and what needs to happen next.
