  I wonder if the attitudes of British people about Disabled People have changed since the Paralympics?




  I think it’s good that younger Disabled people will get more involved in sports because of the Paralympics. It is great to have role models like Ellie Simmonds – she’s a celebrity now!

  If the Paralympics made people feel positive about Disabled people we need them to get behind us now – when Disabled people have lots of problems.



  We hope less Disabled People will be bullied or suffer hate crime because of the Paralympics.

Disabled people across the country will have more opportunities to get involved in sport after Sport England announced 44 projects that will benefit from £10.2 million of National Lottery funding from its Inclusive Sport fund. The fund will help tackle the opportunity gap that sees one in six disabled adults playing sport regularly, compared to one in three non-disabled adults.

Have attitudes towards disabled people changed since the Paralympics?
