What’s your Christmas message to the government?

The Hardest Hit  are planning to send a giant Christmas card to the Government signed by thousands of disabled people, those with long-term conditions and their families and friends. We want to let them know that we are not asking for gifts, but we do want our basic rights protected and the support to enable us to live independently and with dignity.

Proposed changes to the benefits system could leave thousands of people living with cancer without vital financial support during the toughest fight of their lives – pushing some into poverty.

Help us campaign by signing our petition.Your support will be invaluable as we talk to Lords and MPs and they prepare to vote on these changes.

Don’t let disabled children pay the price for welfare reform: reverse unfair plans to cut support by up to £27 per week for 100,000 disabled children

Created by:Bob Reitemeier: Chief Executive, The Children’s Society


Welfare Reform Bill – act now  from RNIB

Help us to:

  • Challenge the 20 per cent budget cut to Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
  • Ensure the benefit that replaces DLA, Personal Independence Payment (PIP), meets the needs of blind and partially sighted people.
  • Make sure people receive contributory Employment Support Allowance (ESA) for as long as they need it to assist them with their pathway towards work.

We need to target peers in the House of Lords in advance of and during their debate and vote on the Welfare Reform Bill. This bill will bring in many of the changes we’re concerned about.

Government spending plans: why are we concerned?


We don’t believe that the Government has fully considered what the impact will be on disabled people and their families if these cuts go ahead. We’ve already heard from many of you who share our concerns
