Leave no one behind

One in six people live with a disability – that is 1.3 billion people worldwide. This number is estimated to double by 2050 with over 80% living in low- or middle-income countries, often in extreme poverty. As the largest marginalised group in the world, they are also the ones most left behind. At CBM UK, our mission is to see this change.

CBM UK is committed to building a world where all people with disabilities can enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential. This is why we advocate for the voices of people with disabilities to be heard together with their vision for inclusive development.

As part of the CBM Global Federation and in partnership with the disability movement, we work to influence systemic and sustainable policy change in line with the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 to Leave No One Behind.
