Title
Disabled people and their relationship with poverty, Heslop,P.
Description
This working paper explores the existing UK literature about disabled people’s relationship with poverty. It is based on a scoping review of literature published in English since 2003 using the following databases: Embase, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS), Medline on OvidSP, PsychINFO, Social Care Online and Social Sciences Citations on Web of Science, and an additional search of ‘grey’ literature. This paper begins with an overview of methodological complexities in relation to measuring ‘disability’ and measuring poverty in relation to disabled people. It then reviews the literature about disabled people’s relationship to, and experiences of poverty. The paper concludes with a review of recent initiatives to address the financial and other support needs of disabled people.
