Poverty and disability

Proportion of Londoners in poverty in families with and without disabled persons (2009/10, 2014/15, and 2019/2020)

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 2019/20, 35% of families that included a disabled person were in poverty compared to 25% of those without a disabled household member.

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