Poverty and disability

Proportion of Londoners in poverty in families with and without disabled persons (2011/12, 2016/17, and 2021/22)

Londoners who live in families that include a disabled person are more likely to be in poverty than those living in families that do not include a disabled person. In the 3 years to 2021/22, 33% of families that included a disabled person were in poverty compared to 22% of those without a disabled household member. 

This gap has not changed in a meaningful way over the decade examined here.
