This is one document in a group of documents about social protection.

You can use these documents to help you talk to decision-makers about social protection and what your government should be doing to support people with disabilities.

This document is about a part of social protection called disability related extra costs.

What are disability related extra costs?

People with disabilities face barriers to being treated equally and being included in the community.

People with disabilities and their families often have to pay more money to overcome these barriers.

This is not fair!

This extra money they spend is called disability related extra-costs.

Disability extra-costs are different for each person.
