The disability charity, Scope, asked whether attitudes to disabled people changed since the London Paralympics? Here are their findings:
A year on from the Game in 2013, 70 per cent of disabled people through the coverage of the Paralympic Games had a positive effect on public perceptions.

But, two years on from London 2012 nearly half (43%) of the British public don’t know anyone who is disabled and the majority (67%) feel awkward around disability.
