I recieve a monthly e mail newsletter which provides up to date information about benefits ie; DLA, ESA ect. This mornings informaion will effect all disabled people who are claiming benefits, it mentions the cuts that the Government plan to make. We are able to make our feelings known, which I for one have done. The mail says the following;
In this newsletter we’re asking you to make sure the blame for much of the increase in the harassment of disabled people is placed where it belongs – at the door of the DWP and its ministers, with their constant campaign of vilification against sick and disabled claimants.
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has begun an investigation into whether public bodies are fulfilling their legal obligations to prevent disabled people from being harassed. If you think the DWP are failing in this duty – and actually making things much worse - email EHRC and tell them so, your details will not be made public. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
And please, let other people know about this enquiry – the more people who contribute the harder it will be for the EHRC to ignore the DWP’s role in hate crimes.
