General Election 2024

The United Kingdom General Election will be held on Thursday 4 July.

This will be an important election for blind and partially sighted people and disabled people more generally. We will be campaigning to highlight the concerns of blind and partially sighted people and encouraging all candidates and political parties to put these issues at the front of their plans for the new Parliament.

An estimated 2 million people in the UK live with a form of sight loss, with up to 20% of the population predicted to experience it in their lifetimes – and this number will double by 2050. 50% of sight loss is avoidable. Only 27% of registered blind and partially sighted people of working age are in employment and blind and partially sighted young people are almost twice as likely to be not in employment, education or training as the general population.
