On Wednesday 13th January 2016 the DBC organised a lobby in Parliament. Over 130 disabled people travelled to Westminster to meet with their MPs to talk about the cuts proposed under the Welfare Reform and Work Bill.

You can see pictures from the day and read disabled people and MPs’ twitter comments on the Storify summary.

David Alkins, News Correspondent for DBC member United Response also covered the lobby in this short video. It includes interviews with disabled people and MPs who attended.
