The right benefits first time around

Disabled people are being repeatedly failed by stressful and degrading benefits assessments and appeals. It shouldn’t be a fight.

In the current system, there’s no way to make sure you’ll get an assessor who understands your condition. And the wrong assessor can lead to the wrong decision. 

Sign the petition to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. Call for disabled people to have the right to an appropriate assessor.
