Have you been through the WCA Assessment? What was it like? How should it be improved?

Hi all,

We are currently trying to try and understand the views and experiences of people with Parkinson’s that have been through the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) that decides whether a person qualifies for Employment and Support Allowance.

We have already held sessions at different branches where people have discussed things that work well and work poorly about the current WCA and what they would like an ideal WCA to look like.

We are holding two online Skype calls where people can let us know their experiences.They will take place:

• Between 11:30-12:30 on the 23rd May,
• Between 3-4pm on the 27th May

If you have been through the WCA and would be interested in attending, please get in touch with us by calling 0207 963 3945 or emailing [email protected].
