Financial Inclusion: Families with Disabled Children. Understanding Their Financial Needs

This research paper highlights two in-depth surveys that analyzed the responses of families with disabled children and presents a detailed picture of the financial challenges and barriers they face. The research results showed that families with disabled children disproportionately struggled to access appropriate financial advice and credit, have very low savings to protect them against financial shocks, and struggle to access appropriate benefits.

“As a single mother with two autistic children, I struggle to maintain a decent standard of living...I find it very difficult to cope with not being able to buy the basic necessities that my children and [I] need.” -Survey Respondent
