DPAC are supporting Disability Labour’s campaign to scrap PIP
Please read the letter from Disability Labour below and then sign and share the change.org petition Disability Labour : Call for inquiry into Capita PIP assessment process and un-ethical conduct
Dear colleagues / friends,
As you will be aware, last week, Disability Labour delivered a letter to the Prime Minister and to Work and Pensions Secretary, Stephen Crabb MP, following the Ch4 Dispatches programme, which revealed the most appalling abuse of claimants with complex healthcare needs. ( Letters attached )
With extremely limited resources, we have attempted to do something about the PIP scandal, which is now discredited but continues to cause deep distress to tens of thousands of vulnerable people across the nation.
Today, we launched our Change.Org campaign, calling for an inquiry and for the PIP programme, to be scrapped immediately. Its punitive and has no place in a a modern civilised society.
In yesterdays Sunday Times, Zac Goldsmiths campaign team, cited the Governments relentless attack on the disabled, as the primary reason for losing the mayoralty to Sadiq Khan.
Can you please sign the petition and forward to all your networks?
Thank you & best wishes
Disability Labour National Executive Committee
