Disability shouldn’t mean everyday life costs more
Jamie Stone has today showed his support for disabled people at a parliamentary event organised by disability equality charity Scope.
The drop-in followed the launch of Scope’s Disability Price Tag report, which reveals the extra costs faced by disabled people each month.
The Disability Price Tag report shows that disabled people face, on average, extra costs of £583 per month.
Commenting Mr Stone said:
“Disability should not mean everyday life costs more. I am therefore very happy to be supporting Scope in their campaign to end the disability price tag.
“We need action from the Government to tackle this issue and they must put in place a welfare system that recognises extra costs, and provides disabled people and their families with the financial support they need.”
