To mark the International Day of People with Disabilities (3 December), ITV Channel commissioned a survey looking at what life is like for people with disabilities across the Channel Islands.

The results of the survey held few surprises, but they did serve to add more data to that collected by the States of Jersey’s Health and Life Opportunities survey in 2015, which was used to inform Jersey’s subsequent Disability Strategy.

After a week of ITV Channel reports dedicated to disability across the Channel Islands, we collect them all here:
