Petition about making PIP fairer for Mental Health patients
« on: March 11, 2017, 08:10:52 PM »
Pip has approved me putting up this petition.

The government thinks it can sneak this past the public and make use of a loophole to push through an unfair policy change in PIP... they are discriminating against us and I refuse to let them get away with it.

Will you join me?

Have a look at this:

The government’s changing the rules so that people with mental health problems can’t get an 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.

Will you join me and sign the petition to demand the government continue funding mental health benefits?
