Panel discussion: Navigating the cost of living crisis

21 Mar 2024
Main Stage
Peer advice & Support

Join us for this panel discussion, where we’ll empower you with vital information to navigate the challenges of this cost-of-living crisis. Our expert speakers - such as benefits advisors, employment access officers, and disability rights champions - will provide a roadmap to the support you need and deserve to navigate these uncertain times.

Understand more about the disability benefits, grants, and assistance that may be available to you and feel more equipped to confidently claim your rights, appeal any denials, and how to manage conversations with providers. 

Here’s what you can expect:

  • A lay of the land on financial, food, housing, and employment help for disabled individuals
  • Guidance from experts on navigating the benefits system and self-advocating
  • Access to a support network and resources for advice and advocacy
  • Support with budget and finance management

You will leave this session with tips and tricks to access the support you deserve.
