Our latest campaigns events and updates
Join us at the high court to show support and solidarity to the claimant taking the legal case against the government’s decision to cap Access to Work. Disabled people from all impairment groups have suffered through changes to the Access to Work disability employment support scheme that have made it harder and harder to get into and stay in work.
Kamil Ahmad was a Disabled Kurdish man who came to Britain seeking sanctuary, having been imprisoned and tortured in Iraq. He was murdered in Bristol on 7 July 2016. Join ROFA in Bristol to honour Kamil, learn from Disabled asylum seekers and build a broader movement, on June 29th 2018.
Starting in May 2018 and continuing over the summer months, members of the Disability Benefits Consortium will be supporting Disabled people, family carers, and anyone with an experience of claiming Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to meet their local MPs to talk to them about PIP.
This meeting will be a chance to share current experiences with Access to Work, plan the next steps in our campaign to improve the scheme and agree the key recommendations for us to focus on following the publication of our research and recommendations in Parliament in October last year.
Human Rights Laws and anti-discrimination legislation: part of the struggle and part of the solution?
Campaigns for anti-discrimination legislation and demands for protection of disabled people’s human rights laws are only part of the struggle to bring about the end of the inequality they encounter through their positioning within society. As disabled activists I believe we need to combine fighting for improvements within existing structures whilst at the same time seeking ways to transform them.
