To discuss welfare reform and social care issues with other disabled and sick people, you’re welcome to join the Spartacus Forum at www.spartacusforum.org.uk
As a small network of sick and disabled people ourselves, we regret we’re unable to help individuals with their own benefit queries. There may be a local organisation which can help – look for welfare rights, disability or independent living charities in your area. Unfortunately, due to the withdrawal of legal aid from welfare cases, many local organisations such as Citizens Advice are both under-resourced and overstretched.
For high quality guides to applying for disability benefits, you may wish to subscribe to the Benefits and Work website.
