100,000 signatures to stop the War On Welfare! #WOWpetition

We call for a Cumulative Impact Assessment of Welfare Reform, and a New Deal for sick & disabled people based on their needs, abilities and ambitions

We call for:

A Cumulative Impact Assessment of all cuts and changes affecting sick & disabled people, their families and carers, and a free vote on repeal of the Welfare Reform Act.

An immediate end to the Work Capability Assessment, as voted for by the British Medical Association.

Consultation between the Depts of Health & Education to improve support into work for sick & disabled people, and an end to forced work under threat of sanctions for people on disability benefits*

An Independent, Committee-Based Inquiry into Welfare Reform, covering but not limited to: (1) Care home admission rises, daycare centres, access to education for people with learning difficulties, universal mental health treatments, Remploy closures; (2) DWP media links, the ATOS contract, IT implementation of Universal Credit; (3) Human rights abuses against disabled people, excess claimant deaths & the disregard of medical evidence in decision making by ATOS, DWP & the Tribunal Service.

*we are against all workfare, the emphasis on disability benefits does not mean to exclude our opposition to all workfare as a general principle.

Our broader strategy:-

Phase One: Gain 100,000 signatures to give our demands democratic legitimacy in seeking parliamentary redress.

Phase Two: With a caucus of supportive MP’s gain as much as possible in the democratic & parliamentary process to stop the human rights abuses against us and restore our health and social security systems. Including debate, free votes, Cumulative Impact Assessment and independent inquiry.

Phase Three: Where parliament and inquiries fail us we will pursue justice through the courts both national and international for the human rights abuse perpetrated by the UK government and its associated corporate allies.

      Always good human beings that care suffer we do not care for the luxuries of this world just the people WE LOVE.

    We are being punished for the few who take advantage of the system. With multiple houses whilst claiming benefits or who aren’t even in the country. I barely survive on benefits,I don’t have luxuries, I don’t have a freezer or dishwasher, I don’t go on holidays. I scrape by bt I get tainted that I don’t want to work. More help is needed to practically help people back to work eg recovery college. People with mental health issues get enough stigma as it is without being seen as scroungers that government portray us all to be, we need more help!

  7. I’m dissabled , it took 4ever at time to get DLA , my condition will not get better , I was put on indefinite DLA why do they know think a miricle has happened and all is well with the dissabled ? A long term illness escalates and other illness follows as a result .

Depression and be isolated pluss bedroom tax and council tax be Lucky if have £50 to live on for 2 weeks! Mr smith Don’t patronise us . have to put fuel in car ! Very stressed over it all !
    Being made out to be scum if on benifit . We are human beings not trash!
    I have stair lift. But will be charged bedroom tax if don’t move ? Could fill out some form for help but will not be sure to get it next year ? Life is a struggle and its going get worse for people on benifit Human rights
    ? Yeh treat the needy and ill like scum how have we got. In such a mess ?
    I for one feel under threat worried stressed , know wonder depression is rife and untimely deaths ! People are desperate and scared .

    why should there be people with billions of pounds and others who can barely scrape a meal together?

    regardless of disability etc, the entire system needs changing, the only people who want it like this are the super rich, a handful of people who have most of the money.

  9. Jo Cadden says: April 17, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Picking on the vulnerable because you think they won’t have the strength to complain will not be tolerated. Stop kicking people when they are down, get some decent policies and target the real problems in society. Get the generations of idle wasters who breed like mice and are happy to live like that and HELP the disabled, sick and temporarily unemployed instead of throwing them on the scrap heap!

  10. Sami Turner says: April 29, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    What is being done with the DLA is discrimination and those who really know what this cut means to the people it affects will stand up with them for their right to live independently! Please see sense.

    The government are trying to save money by passing their debts onto us who have already paid in the first place. They are ok because their decisions dont affect them. My dla got taken away last July because Atos who have been told to reduce how many people get dla regardless as to whether they need it or not, twisted the information given so that I can apparently do everything without help. They took the car away and I nearly lost my job because they made me stuck in my flat with no access to the outside world. When they were told they had made me housebound I got told its not their problem. Now the dwp will pay twice as much in cabs than I was paying for diesel for a month so I can get to work half a mile up the road. The tribunal was the same completely ignoring 6 different doctors letter and going with the dodgy report to save money. They say that they are trying to get disabled people into work but are holding it against me because I have a job even if it is only part time. As a result from them taking the dla away I have lost all the help that I spent years fighting for, I have lost my friends, freedom, privacy, independence and they have left me with nothing. I am stuck indoors and terrified into a panic attack everytime the door bell goes or the telephone in case its more government coming to take the little I have left. This is all because the government are passing their debts to everyone else and then the disabled community gets punished and judged by people who have never met you before and never had a single thing wrong with them who then completely ignore the doctors who do actually know you better. They dont write letters just because you ask them, they only ever write them if you do have medical problems. Apparently to keep the tribunal happy, I have to see a consultant for the ten medical conditions that I have every month and go to the GP every time I fall. Id never get out of the hospital if I did that. This country has become shameful.

    Please don’t cut disability you never know who will need it in the future!!

  13. Barbara Adams says: August 24, 2013 at 3:46 am

    This, sadly, will never change…
    unless and until the deciders are panels of qualified medical physicians, instead of politicians.

  14. aneel kalbag says: August 28, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    where is the fairness in WCA? Target the feckless and lazy if we must, but don’t target some of the most vulnerable people in our society
