This Autumn Statement, Disabled People And Carers Will Be Hardest Hit

December 5, 2012

UK readers, you probably know that this afternoon, our Chancellor, George Osborne, will deliver his annual Autumn Statement.

I was planning to listen to the whole thing and pick out the parts that will affect sick and disabled people and carers one by one.

Last time Mr Osborne delivered a Budget, I sadly found this process a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. So this time, I was very pleased to find that at least two kind journalists much more famous than my little old self have done the hard work for me in advance. So I’m going to do a link round-up instead.

  • And at Comment Is Free yesterday Polly Toynbee wrote that 42,000 young carers will lose £58 a week Severe Disability Premium, 20% of their weekly household income.

If I spot any more related articles, I’ll add to the list.
