UNISON supports disability WOW campaign - add your name to e-petition now

UNISON is supporting the disability WOW campaign and petition which calls for an end to the war on welfare and for a cumulative impact assessment of welfare reform and a new deal for sick and disabled people and their families and carers based on their needs, abilities and ambitions. 

Sign the Petition here: http://wowpetition.com/ 

The petition currently has 96,000 signatures. 100,000 signatures before closing date on 12 Dec will mean it has to be considered for a Parliamentary debate at Westminster.

UNISON UK policy officer Allison Roche said: "UNISON believes that the current cuts of £23 billion in disability benefits are not creating a better welfare system but an ill fare system for disabled people and their carers and families. 

"It's not just about people losing care services, it's also the quality of care they receive with the increased pressure on staff to cover more clients."
