Every Disabled Child Matters Report

DID YOU KNOW…

Access to benefits is one thing that can help disabled and seriously ill children and their families address the great financial inequalities they face.

However, as recently stated in the Every Disabled Child Matters Report….many families struggle to get the benefits they need. Disabled and seriously ill children and their families have been affected by changes to the benefits system over a number of years.

The ‘Counting the Costs’ report showed that 33% of families with disabled and seriously ill children feel they are worse off, with 46% saying that they were worse off by £30 per week.

These changes have caused anxiety, confusion and can have a significant impact on their income, and quality of life.The statistics we look at today are nothing short of appalling and need to be changed with great impact!!!

We need to help these families by making these changes for them…and help them enjoy a life full of special memories to recall with their inspirational children….not memories of unhappiness to look back on from all the great financial worries they faced and are still facing today!!!

YOUR SUPPORT COULD HELP BUILD THEIR FUTURE!!!
