|Many other advice agencies and disabilities charities have similar success rates and the most recent Government statistics show that overall three quarters of appellants win. However, we know we are only managing to help a fraction of those who need it. The majority of those who are refused either do not realise that have a right to properly independent appeal or are put off by the prospect of dealing with DWP any further.
This year, Z2K is hosting a fringe meeting at Labour Party Conference with Shadow Disabilities Minster, Marsha De Cordova MP, and select committee member Ruth George MP to discuss what more can be done by the voluntary sector, local government and the Labour Movement to force DWP to make fundamental reforms to the disability benefit assessments and help those claimants affected in the meantime.
We hope you will join us for what should be a lively and interesting discussion.
