Help us fight disabled poverty

Dear Editor,

A REPORT just published by the Leonard Cheshire Disability charity shows that disabled people are twice as likely to live in poverty as non-disabled.

This is clearly unacceptable and must be addressed by the Government.

Our research showed that on average life costs 25 per cent more for the disabled.

There are all sorts of ways people can get involved in our campaign to end disability poverty, such as asking their MP to take action. Call us or go online.
