Project title: The lived experiences of Income Assistance Designations Persons with Disabilities (PWD) and Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers (PPMB).

Hello! My name is Katie Forman, I am a Master’s student in Anthropology at Simon Fraser University. I am doing research that explores people’s experiences applying for PWD (Persons with Disabilities) and PPMB (Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers) Income Assistance.

I am looking for people to who have applied for PWD or PPMB or are going to apply for PWD or PPMB to participate in this research.

This could mean:
– Having a conversation with me about your experience
– Having a series of conversations if you like
– Having a meeting with friends or family if you choose

To start I’d like to meet with you for a conversation (no longer than an hour) at a coffee shop, library or another place you feel comfortable. Your involvement in this project will be kept confidential if you choose.

By participating in this research you can:
– Gain experience working in research projects
– Have input on Income Assistance research
– Make new social connections
