Only one in five disabled and older people feel the government is doing enough to support them during the Covid-19 outbreak.

A snap, UK-wide, survey by RiDC of its 1,649 panel members (conducted between 30th March and 3 April 2020), has collected immediate feedback on the impact of government measures on disabled and older people.
