- 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.

Motivated by the Hardest Hit Protest, ACT NOW are today launching a national petition:
We urge the Labour Party to strongly oppose the Government’s Welfare Reform Bill in the same way they are vigorously opposing NHS reform.
The Coalition Government is committed to seeing the welfare 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.
ACT NOW welcomes Liam Byrne's recognition of the need to protect the most vulnerable in society as per his speech yesterday. (10/05/11)
We are asking the Labour Party to strongly oppose the Government’s Welfare Reform Bill as such reforms are breaking the covenant of care between people with disabilities and the welfare state.
We need your support to make sure this phase of our campaign is successful - we need YOU to sign and share our petition!
We Need The Labour Party to ACT NOW!http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/act-now-urge-labour-to-oppose-welfare-reform.html
