Using data from the Projecting Adult Needs and Service Information (PANSI) for people aged 18-64 and Projecting Older People Population Information (POPPI) for people aged 65 and over it is possible to estimate the number of people with physical disabilities.  In Stockton-on-Tees, 30% of those with severe physical disability (age 18-64) or with a limiting long-term illness (age 65+) receive services, compared with 23.1% in England.  It is likely that not all people identified will require services, but 7 in 10 of those with physical disabilities currently don’t receive services in Stockton.
