Time-limited Contributory Employment and Support Allowance

Time-limited Contributory Employment and Support Allowance is being restricted to one year for those in the Work-Related Activity Group – see http://www.dwp.gov.uk/docs/esa-time-limit-wr2011-ia-revised-apr2011.pdf

Solicitors Irwin Mitchell are keen to find someone entitled to legal aid to try to challenge this appalling EIA. We ideally need someone who has already been placed in WRAG group to make this legal challenge.. Do you live in the north-west and fall into this category, or are at risk of it in the future? (The solicitor has said they can do a home visit if necessary.) Contact Linda on 01926 842253/0771 492 7533      

Independent Living Fund

The closure of the Independent Living Fund to new applicants is denying essential independent living support to many disabled people. The government is saying that support provided by the Independent Living Fund is available through personal budgets and Direct Payments from local authorities but this is simply not true. If you have been adversely affected by the changes to the ILF  and would be interested in taking a legal challenge against it please contact Linda on  01926 842253/ 07714927533.
