"I Agree With Dick"
Newsflash - We're hosting an MP Capability Assessment - find out more!
Five weeks ago I wrote about my son's experiences of the WCA. It has been an incredibly difficult process. I know that thousands of people are having the same experience. You might be one of them - or you might be supporting someone who is.
I also shared the amazing news that a judicial review found that people with severe mental illness are at a substantial disadvantage when going through the Work Capability Assessment (WCA). The court is setting additional dates for more hearings. Meanwhile, people with mental health problems continue to be re-assessed to decide whether they are fit to work.
I imagine that the DWP are hoping we will all just go away. If we're going to change their behaviour, we need to dial up the pressure even more.
Things need to change and I have a really simple solution.
Until the WCA is fixed, the Government should stop pushing people with mental health problems through this re-assessment process.
If you agree with me, please sign my petition. Tell as many people as you can to sign along with you.
Stand up and say, 'I agree with Dick!'
I want to get people really talking, so let's try something a bit different - if you're on Facebook or Twitter, just say 'I agree with Dick'
and see what happens! If your friends ask you about it, tell them to go to www.IAgreeWithDick.org
- and they will see the petition there.
