Disability Supports Feasibility Study: Final Report

Authors:Doug TattrieColin StuartReuben FordDavid GyarmatiRoy Haines

The Disability Supports Feasibility Study (DSFS) pilot project provided supports to unemployed people with disabilities to help them find work and keep working. Unlike many support programs, DSFS did not assess an individual’s need for a particular support. Instead, people with disabilities could purchase any support they wanted from a list of eligible supports (up to a monthly maximum expenditure). Half the project participants were given credit cards to purchase supports. The rest were issued cheques made out to the support suppliers. Both payment methods allowed participants to purchase eligible supports very quickly with minimal paperwork and only routine administrative problems. The study concluded that it was feasible to operate a DSFS-type program offering disability and employment supports.
