Invi­sible Disabi­lities

Disability affects more people than you may think, and it’s not always visible.

ITV has partnered with disability equality charity, Scope, to promote understanding of invisible disabilities.

What is an invisible disability?

Some impairments and conditions are not immediately obvious. These are wide-ranging and include:

  • autism
  • chronic pain
  • mental health conditions
  • learning difficulties
  • hearing impairments
  • asthma
  • diabetes

Impact on the lives of disabled people

Disabled people with invisible impairments and conditions often experience negative attitudes, social isolation and a lack of understanding.

Just because someone doesn’t ‘look disabled’, doesn’t mean they don’t face barriers.
