From Carerwatch: Stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families.

You can see the full petition on the Government website here , SIGN HERE:

If it gets 100,000 signatures it could generate a debate in Parliament.

There is massive concern over the huge extent of both the welfare reforms and the cuts. Too often when people speak up, their voice is fragmented and discounted. This is an opportunity to get everyone together to speak with one voice, and to register in one place, how many people are asking the government to listen.

Firstly – obviously – we ask you to sign this petition and persuade all your family and friends to do the same. The name of the game is numbers ; so please ask friends, family and any organisations you belong to to sign and get others to sign.

When you sign the petition you will see buttons for twitter and facebook; so please share it with others on Twitter and Facebook.  Let Pat know she has your support by leaving a comment here too.
The first signatures will be the hardest to get, while we get this juggernaut rolling, so please help now and make sure that this petition really takes off.

This petition will only succeed if everyone joins together to support it.

Organisations on board so far that have agreed to help raise awareness of Pat’s Petition are:
Disability Alliance
The Broken of Britain
Benefits and Work
Pain Concern
Inclusion Scotland
Sue Marsh – Diary of a Benefit Scrounger
Carers Forum uk
University and College Union
The Afiya Trust
Benefits and Work
Scottish Council on Visual Impairment
