Will Disabled People be worse off? Changing DLA to PIP

Ace is worried

I am worried about PIP and how it will affect me and my family. I don’t know why they are changing DLA – I wish they would leave it as it is.

Malak is frightened about going for a DLA assessment

 ear1sml  I am frightened of having to go for a new assessment. Being asked lots of questions puts me under pressure and makes me anxious.

It's another attack on disabled people

 ear1sml  It feels like another attack on Disabled People and the cuts in our benefits. I don’t think they asked Disabled People to give their views on the changes. They don’t listen to us and our experiences.

We have to fight against the cuts

ear1sml  I’m worried that my means of getting out and about will be taken away and I’ll be stuck in the home, like a prisoner. We have to fight against being made poorer and not having a fair chance. We have to show how this affects our equal rights.

Disability benefit cuts – we won!

3 Jan

Ace is over the moon I am really over the moon that we won against the Government about the Mobility Allowance part of disability living allowance. The Government are not going to take away the Mobility Allowance from disabled people who live in residential care.

We wrote about this in our blod in May and in November 2011

We wrote about this in the blog in November 2011’s archive called, The Hardest Hit – Thousands march against disability benefits cuts. Annabel also went to London in May 2011 to protest about the cuts – see our blog in May 2011, Disability March on London!

 

KickAss Maracas says lets go party!

Congratulations everyone, we have won! Let’s go celebrate and have a party!

  

 

Annabel is proud of all disabled people who have spoken out against the cuts!

This shows how great it is that disabled people and our friends and family in Britain have spoken up for our rights and won!
