Agreed – pieces of shit! – these letters are randomly sent out to people in the Support Group of ESA. The wording of these letters make you think you have to attend – these letters are cruel and harassing. I’veheard of casets where they sent these letters out to people dying in hospital – worse still, already dead. It’s quite clear enough when you get ‘awarded’ the support group ( which usually does have reviews ) that you can ask for work related activity or volunteer – these letters are unnecessary and harassing. They should be STOPPED.

DWP, you really are a piece of shit!
Tracy and Nick Gaskin
Officials have apologised after a man who cannot walk, talk or feed himself was told he had to attend a Job Centre interview to discuss his benefit payments as well as “training to up date his skills.”
Nick Gaskin, 46, from Quorn, was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) 16 years ago.
He can no longer do anything for himself and needs round the clock care.
He and his wife Tracy were astonished to receive a letter from the Loughborough Job Centre with an appointment for July 22.
The letter states: “You and your personal advisor will discuss the possibility of going into paid work, training for work, or looking for work in the future.”
His wife, Tracy, called the centre to explain the situation but was told he still had to attend.

The ILF is a lifeline to severely disabled people. It would actually cost Social Care MORE by scrapping this very important fund.
We have spent decades moving disabled people out of institutions – and rightly so – and the TORY Party want to undo all that GOOD work. Don’t severely disabled people deserve lives? Deserve the chance to have jobs? And to ‘fit in’ to society?
As a wheelchair user myself, and before illness, having cared for my own mum, whom has multiple sclerosis, I/we feel unimportant to the TORY Party, who have made it clear that they do not have empathy nor understanding when it comes to disability.
The ILF is a life saver for some. WHY are they taking away something that IS cost effective? It just does not make sense.
We need to fight this all the way!
Soap stars and disabled campaigners explain why the Independent Living Fund (ILF) is such a vital source of support and why it should not close. #SaveILF
