The Disability Benefit Consortium has launched its 2014 Big Benefits Survey and is looking for input.
The Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) has been monitoring whether recommendations made and implemented during the four Independent Reviews of the Work Capability Assessment over the last four years have had an impact over the last three years.
The DBC is a national coalition of over 50 different charities and other organisations (including Disability Rights UK) committed to working towards a fair benefits system.
Using its combined knowledge, experience and direct contact with disabled individuals and carers, it seeks to ensure Government policy reflects and meets the needs of all disabled people.
It has surveyed disabled people and welfare rights advisers in the last three years to feed into the Independent Reviews and is keen to get some up-to-date responses to feed into the fifth and final Review, led by Dr Paul Litchfield.
The surveys will open for five weeks and will close at midnight on 3 August 2014.
The survey for ESA claimants is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DBCsurvey2014
For welfare Right Advisers is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/welfarerightsadvisors -
