Tell Matt Hancock to scrap the Coronavirus Act Easements

Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

The Coronavirus Act has diminished our rights and allows local authorities to strip away social care. We must stand together and push the government to give them back.

We believe Disabled people already have too few rights and protections, and taking them away at a time when we need support the most is unacceptable. Disabled people have born the brunt of the pandemic, statistics show, almost 60% of people who have died because of Covid-19 were disabled.

We cannot and should not tolerate this. Please sign our petition today!
