Stop Access To Work Cuts for the Disabled

Stop Access To Work Cuts for the Disabled

Stop the Cuts. It's not the right thing to do. Cutting Access to Work for disabled people will put them out of work and they will lose their dignity.

With the recent news about the new government's plans for scrapping Access to Work, all disabled people need to unite and stress the importance of this service for their independence.

Why is this important?

Access to Work has provided a lot of disabled people with the independence to work. Without access to work, disabled people will not be able to do their jobs fully or not at all.

Since this petition was started the day after the general election we have over 8,000 signatures. This shows how many of you take this petition to heart. I thank you for all your support and we still need more signatures. Once we have reached over 10,000 this petition will be taken to Lindsay Hoyle MP. Many thanks for your support.

We also need to educate the public about Access to Work - what is it? The general public are mostly unaware and if we make them aware we will get more support.

I will be updating this petition soon with more info on A2W and what it is to help a better understanding for everyone.

Please keep circling this petition without your support we would have not got this far.

We need more signatures. Share. We also need to hear from you. How has it effected you? If you have not joined the FB group yet. Please do so and share your story. We need to educate people why we need support in our employment. How do we feel without support? Inferior?

How it will be delivered

I will deliver the petition to my local MP - Lindsay Hoyle MP.


Reasons for signing

  • It shouldn't be cut people work disability very bad it is
  • So disgusted at the way disabled people are treated. They have often paid into the 'national' 'insurance' system for years only to be refused what they now need. This can happen to anyone ...
  • I am a disabled teacher
