DLA and Benefits changes

Consultation end date: 30 April 2012

With so many changes to Welfare Benefits taking place that we have produced this factsheet focussing on the benefits that are most likely to affect the people we support.

You can also read about the 10 Personal Independence Payment pledges which we've asked providers to sign up to alongside other members of the Disability Benefits Consortium.

The Government is changing DLA to become Personal Independence Payments. If you currently receive DLA, and are of working age, will have to undertake a new assessment, which will determine if you will receive the new benefit.

The DWP has developed a draft assessment, and we would welcome comments from you to help inform our response. Contact Megan Wilson by email.
