Whilst some disabled and sick people are unable to work due to the severity of their symptoms, many more of us would like to work but are unable to do so because ”work” as understood in our society simply does not suit or accommodate many people who are chronically sick. I wrote an article on this in the summer, which has just been published on the Disability Rights UK blog: http://disabilityrightsuk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/disability-chronic-sickness-and-work.html
Following on from those thoughts, some of us have been thinking about what would be necessary to allow us to work and we’d like your views. For details of the initial ideas and suggestions, and to get involved in the consultation, see Sue Marsh’s blog: http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/work-consultation.html.
Read Sue’s other post, too, in which she’s asking us to blog, tweet and share on Facebook using the hashtag #DisabilitysNotWorking: http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/disabilitys-not-working.html
If the Government is serious about wanting us to work, this is our opportunity to tell them how work needs to be organised to enable us to do so
