WCA reform focus group

Hi all,

We are about to undertake a project 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 would like to invite people who have been through the WCA to a Parkinson’s UK focus group in our office, which will be held sometime between late March and late April.

Participating groups will be asked to discuss things that work well and work poorly about the current WCA and what they would like an ideal WCA to look like. 

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].
