Responsible Reform- The #SpartacusReport

In December 2011, a whole group of disabled people got together to produce a report on the Government’s plans to replace Disability Living Allowance with Personal Independence Payments. This was dubbed #spartacusreport in a Twitter campaign. The achievement of writing the report was so great, and the campaign such a success, that I decided to list all posts about it in one place on this page.

Hopefully, one day, disabled people will look back on this campaign and smile.
