The Disability Benefits Consortium of over 80 charities and organisations has launched its 2017 Big Benefits Survey, which aims to better understand disabled people’s experience of applying for and claiming disability benefits.
We know that disabled people often struggle to get the financial support they need. We want to hear from as many disabled people as possible so we can understand what is and isn’t working well.
The survey asks about claimants’ experiences of the benefits system, particularly Employment and Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payment. Responses will be kept anonymous, unless respondees offer to be contacted further.
The anonymous evidence provided will help us to campaign for a fairer benefits system for all disabled people. Anyone who has supported individuals to apply for these benefits is welcome to fill it in of their behalf.
