Barry joined disabled people and representatives from the Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) for a reception in Parliament.
The event was to launch the latest report from the Consortium – ‘The impact of welfare changes on disabled people’. The DBC is a national coalition of over 80 different charities and other organisations committed to working towards a fair benefits system. You can find a full list of DBC members here.
The report is a culmination of over a year’s worth of research looking in detail at the impact of the last 10 years of welfare reform on disabled people. It was a brilliant opportunity to find out more about the report and to speak to disabled people and people living with health conditions who have experience of claiming welfare benefits.
