Benefits and Work entirely opposes the proposed changes to DLA and the
spurious basis on which they are being made. We strongly support CarerWatch in their aim of trying to find out from disability charities what they intend to do about the cuts. We also hope that charities will boycott any ‘consultation’ about how to implement the changes, because we know that their input will be largely ignored but the fact that they were consulted will be used to dismiss criticism. It happened with ESA and it will happen again with DLA unless the charities have the courage to put their members interests first – even if it makes them unpopular with the coalition.
