Ditch disability benefits cuts campaign

Sachin Shah and Tina Walker marching at the Hardest Hit March in London

We urgently need your help to stop devastating £1,500-a-year benefits cuts for people with Parkinson's.

The Government is rushing its Welfare Reform and Work Bill through Parliament, with Clause 13 proposing dangerous cuts in benefits for people with Parkinson's.

If the Bill's passed, those on Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) in the Work Related Activity Group – because they're too ill to work – will receive around £30 less each week.

Many people with Parkinson's fall into this category, and use this money to pay for basics like food and heating.

From 2017, they'll need to live on £73.10 per week, compared to just over £100 now.

Take action today

The Bill is moving fast. We're running out of time to get the Government to rethink its plans and scrap Clause 13.

We need you to write to or email your MP and ask them to raise concerns with Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.
