The Experts by Experience Panel have noted that one of its key priorities is the relationship between disability and poverty and the impact that poverty has on disabled people. This is due to concerns that the Panel have that disabled people face lower rates of employment and higher costs of living and are more likely to be living in poverty. Due to this link to poverty, the Panel has taken an interest in issues such as eligibility conditions, access to benefits and the amount of disability assistance that is provided to disabled people.
