Physical disabilities

What is the projected level of need?

The number of people with a moderate or serious physical disability aged 18-64 is expected to peek within the next 8-10 years and then begin to fall slowly.  In contrast the number of people aged over 65 with a limiting long-term illness is forecast to increase by 10% by 2016, and in 2025 the number will be 35% higher than in 2012 and continuing to increase further by 2030.
