Provide accessible information on cost of living support to disabled people

Petition Details

Ensure that clear and accessible information about cost of living support available to disabled people is provided to them at the earliest opportunity. This should include different formats which meet the needs of the end user, along with advice on how support will provided, or needs to be claimed.

Additional Information

Disabled people are disproportionately disadvantaged by the cost of living crisis when compared to the rest of the population. This is compounded by the often poor and inaccessible communication to disabled people regarding the financial support available to them - it must be recognised that certain disabilities make it difficult for some individuals to access information from websites and other sources that are accessibly to those without disabilities.
