The Coalition Government is committed to seeing these reforms through and our only hope of changing the road ahead for Welfare Reform now lies with the Labour Party.
ACT NOW is committed to lobbying and working with any political party who is willing to listen to us about the effect the reforms are already having on adults with autism and their families.
Tomorrow we will be writing to Liam Byrne and Ed Miliband and asking the Labour Party to:
- Restore the welfare covenant to ensure that vulnerable people with disabilities are protected and not living in fear.
- Do not time limit ESA.
- Ensure that any method of assessing work capability is fit for purpose.
