Don’t change the rules on PIP

by Rachel Whalley Mar 9th, 2017

The government’s changing the rules so that people with mental health problems can’t get essential financial support called Personal Independence Payment (PIP). This is money that helps people pay for carers or therapy sessions. In other words, money needed to live with dignity.

The government’s sneaking through the changes next week without a vote. But there’s a last-minute way that thousands of us could stop this cut happening. The plan is to use a special parliamentary process to force a proper vote in the House of Commons – and the bigger the public outcry, the more likely it is to happen.

That’s where you come in. You’re one of thousands of people reading this email right now. If each of us signs the petition today, it’ll be the first step in our plan to overturn these cuts.

Sign the petition here.

The original article was written on 9th March. If the vote was a week later, its all too late already
