The forthcoming spending cuts are of concern to many people. And there is real concern that these cuts may affect disabled people disproportionately, potentially increasing poverty and social exclusion.
Scope have set up a campaign about this called Don’t Cut Us Out.
One of the ways people can participate is to sign the petition. There is also a template letter you can e-mail or post to your MP, asking them to sign EDM 706 in Parliament (it’s specifically about spending cuts and disabled people). If you don’t know who your MP is or how to contact them, you can use this website to find out.
