It's Time to End 'Fake Claim' Harassment of Disabled People

Reading now: 250

Fake claiming is the act of harassing a disabled person by claiming they are faking their disability. This abuse is commonly directed towards people with invisible disabilities, those who do not use visible mobility aids (or use them part-time) and people who don’t meet the narrow stereotype of what disability looks like (e.g.

younger people). Fake claiming can happen anywhere at any time but commonly occurs when disabled people access facilities such as accessible parking spaces, toilets or public transport seats.

Almost every person with an invisible condition will have been subjected to fake claiming at some point. This needs to end. We are launching a U.K.-wide campaign to End Fake Claiming.
