In 2012, the States conducted a Disability Needs Survey which estimated that there are 4,000 Islanders in Guernsey and Alderney with a long-term condition and who experience significant difficulty in everyday life. That's an estimated 6% of the population.
People experiencing significant difficulty are part of an estimated total of just under 14,000 people (21% of the population) in Guernsey and Alderney with a long term condition that affects their day to day life. Potentially anyone with such a condition might experience discrimination, therefore, when developing disability equality legislation, all people with a long-term condition need to be considered.
