War on Welfare (WOW) are lobbying against austerity on behalf of sick and disabled people, their families and carers.
They are currently running a petition calling for:
-a cumulative Impact Assessment of all cuts and changes;
-a free vote on repeal of the Welfare Reform Act;
-a consultation between the Department of Health and Department for Education to improve support into work;
-an end to forced work under threat of sanctions for people on disability benefits;
-an independent, committee-based inquiry into welfare reform.
You are encouraged to sign the petition which is available at: epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/43154
The petition - which closes on 12th December - has almost achieved 100,000 signatures (at or above which, the issue is likely to be debated in Parliament).
