For some, flying with a disability is a daunting prospect and as a result people with disabilities only make up a small percentage of the total number of air passengers in the UK. Recently, a report from the CAA found that of the 260 million passengers that flew in and out the UK in 2016, only 3.1 million passengers used special assistance services. This makes up only 1.52% of all passengers, suggesting barriers for people with disabilities remain.
QEF's Independent Living Services, at Dorincourt near Leatherhead, currently has some places available for young people with disabilities who want to develop the skills and experience for living independently.
