On-line Survey by The Commission on Social Security UK

All about money
There's an Online Survey about Social Security Benefits to be completed by July 2019......

Commission on Social Security UK
Led by Experts by Experience

The social security (welfare benefits) system is failing.
But there is little agreement on how the system can be improved.
The Commission on Social Security led by Experts by Experience is a project set up to find out how the government could make the welfare benefits system better.

.... and , what of the end user , the " Experts " claiming benefits ?

Any room for , at least one , of them at the table ?

Academics and suits ... haven't we all suffered as a direct result of them dictating the various playing fields ?
Yep ... ties in with other " Happenings " out there.

Rest assured ... UC ... even if there is a change a Government ... that infection will be with us all for a very long time.

A good idea ... on paper ... until the Treasury started to tinker with the numbers.

I refer to the link I originally found the website on, and have thus underlined it ;

Call for help to design a social security system of dignity, respect and trust

Disabled people and others with personal experience of claiming benefits are leading a ground-breaking project to devise a new social security system, in which claimants would be treated with dignity, trust and respect.

The Commission on Social Security, led by Experts by Experience, will seek ideas from other claimants, organisations and academics, before drawing up their own white paper and putting it out for consultation.

They will then launch a campaign to seek public and political approval for their final ideas.

Yep ... very similar to the discussion groups back in 2009 ... before the last Green Paper.

End users galore in the discussion groups.

None whatsoever in the subsequent decision making group.

And , look what happened then !

History repeating itself ?

House Select Committee Report in 2008 ... and even better example ... of " Democracy " in action ... especially important
as it dealt exclusively with us ... our postion in society , and the monies we were expected to live on.
