Welfare Reform – Who’s Hardest Hit?

The Hardest Hit coalition invites you to an event to help disabled Scots get ready for a week of action on the welfare reforms imposed by the UK Government.

Welfare Reform – Who’s Hardest Hit? is open to disabled people, carers and families who will be affected by the reforms, with workshops explaining the changes and what the reforms will mean for you- as well as practical tips on how to lobby your politicians about the changes.

 
September’s event follows on from last year’s Hardest Hit rally in Edinburgh.  The rally attracted around 1,000 people from across Scotland to protest against the UK Government's welfare reform programme.
 
The event is open to anyone who is concerned about the impact of reforms including cuts to Disability Living Allowance, changes to Housing Benefits and the introduction of the Universal Credit and how they may be affected.  The event will include workshops providing information about what the reforms actually mean and practical tips on how to lobby local MPs about the changes. 
 
There will also be personal advice surgeries running throughout the day.  These will be delivered by welfare reform experts who will be able to offer practical benefits advice.
