Scope’s Prisoners Campaign To Save DLA For People In Care Homes

December 8, 2010

Scope have set up a campaign allowing people to email Maria Miller, the Minister for Disabled People, through their website, telling her why she must help to reverse the Government’s decision to remove the mobility component of DLA from people living in residential care homes.

This is part of their ‘Don’t Cut Us Out’ benefit cuts campaign. Its tagline is ‘Disabled People Should Never Be Prisoners In Their Own Homes.’

I completely agree with that statement, and completely support the campaign. If you do too, you can email Maria Miller here.

    As you may be aware the Government are cynically abolishing DLA and
    replacing it with something called PIP. This will remove the entitlement for High Rate Mobility anyway.

    The debate should not be about how to implement PIP but on how to save DLA.

    Therefore please encourage all your members to sign the following Petition:-


    Petition the Minister for Disabled People to Recall the Public
    Consultation on DLA Reform

    Kind regards

    The DLA Help Group.

    As a footnote to the above note that Maria Miller’s office is closed until 29th December and is not accepting any emails. So submitting any via the Scope campaign will be pointless anyway until after Dec 29th.

    The Petition is open now however.
