Please share what you would like people to know about your experience accessing or relying on the Disability Assistance Benefit.
I can’t put into words the degree of stress I experience daily living on so little. I never know how I’m going to be ok – I’m not. I want to have hope but I don’t now. It impacts everything.
What do you dream support for people with disabilities could look like?
That the medical treatment we need would be covered. That we would have rent based on income. That we could have housing that we could afford to live in. That the food bank supplied enough food for people who can’t eat majority of what’s given & even if I could they supply you with 2-3 days of that food – there is a misconception out there that it’s more but not in the city I live in.
