Love Special Needs – The Spartacus Report – Welfare Cuts Campaign

The #SpartacusReport is the response from disabled people to the Welfare Reform Bill. In a nutshell the main issue is that the government is trying to cut 20% of the budget for DLA (Disability Living Allowance), when fraud figures are around 0.5% . This implies that people who are currently assessed as being disabled are somehow no longer going to be eligible. The replacement benefit PIP (Personal Independence Plans) will be even more difficult to claim – DLA is by no means an easy benefit to claim right now.
