DR UK condemns idea of cutting ESA

30 October 2014

Disabled people are already twice as likely to live in poverty as non-disabled people. Reducing benefits would be cruel and unfair.

The reason savings have not been made from the introduction of the new assessments and benefits regime is because the programmes to support disabled people to get and keep work are not working well enough. Government should fix that, including investing in Access to Work - not frighten people with the idea of reducing ESA.

We reported this earlier today.
