Neal Lawson, Chair of Compass signs Pats Petition

When there are no jobs, and services are being cut to the bone, why is the government targeting disabled people, those with ill health and their carers/families, rather than the bankers who caused the crisis?

MacMillan help raise awareness of Pat’s petition

Hi Pat Thanks for your message – and for your kind words about Macmillan. Our next campaigns newsletter isn’t due to be sent out until well into the New Year, but our campaigns blog does get emailed out to our supporters so I’ll definitely make sure Pat’s petition gets a mention in December. I will of course let you know once it’s published. Very best wishes...

Independent Living supports Pat’s Petition

Independent Living   is really concerned about fairness, and ensuring that those in most need get the appropriate resources, so we support Pat’s Petition, calling on government to review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on people with disabilities, carers and families.
