Extra costs

Life costs more if you're disabled. This has to change.

Disabled people and their families face many extra costs. From expensive equipment to services, many pay over the odds for essentials.

Life costs you £550 more on average a month if you're disabled, but the support to cover these costs - Disability Living Allowance - is only £360 a month.

If you need a wheelchair, you need a wheelchair - there’s no way round it. People must get the support to be able to live their life.
