The extra cost of disability has been highlighted for years. Now is an opportunity for people with disabilities to document the many extra costs they live with on a daily basis, to inform future supports and policy.
A report on the Cost of Disability has been commissioned by the Department of Employment Affairs & Social Protection, DEASP. Last week a survey on the Cost of Disability was posted to a random sample of over 33,000 people in receipt of relevant disability payments, as well as a survey specifically designed for the over 1,000 people in receipt of Blind Pension.
You can also complete this survey online. It is really important that as many people as possible complete it.
