What is Fake Claiming?
Fake Claiming is the act of harassing a disabled
person by claiming they are faking their disability. This abuse is commonly directed towards people with invisible disabilities when they access facilities such as accessible parking spaces, toilets or public transport seats.
In the UK it is estimated that 10 Million people have invisible disabilities (statistics from wearepurple.org.uk). Almost all of these people will have faced Fake Claiming at some point.
