Disability benefits at threat! Act quickly to make your voice heard

ImageThe information below has been received from Benefits and Works website. Please read it and sign on the website below. There are now over 5000 signatures but please don’t stop from signing up, and in addition if you could contact your MP and voice your concern to them.

Claimants have less than 100 days to prevent their DLA and AA being abolished. A government green paper, entitled 'Shaping the future of care together' has revealed proposals to stop paying ‘disability benefits, for example, attendance allowance’’ and hand the cash over to social services instead. Under the plan, current claimants would have their disability benefits converted to a ‘personal budget’ administered by local authorities and used to pay for services – not to spend as they wish.

Once the green paper consultation period ends, if an almighty row has not been raised, it is likely that both major political parties will see the lack of outrage as a green light to end both DLA and AA. The aim was a minimum of 1,000 (this has already been passed in the first 24 hours but please don't stop), claimants, carers and support workers to join our campaign to save these benefits from being abolished.
