HiI would like to draw your attention to Pat's Petition. This is a petition placed on the government's own website. It calls for the government to "Stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families". The link is herehttp://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/20968 This petition has come from a group of ordinary volunteers, who are carers and / or disabled who are alarmed by the number of changes taking place and their effect on society's most vulnerable. We judge our society, and our government, by the care and support they offer to those who need it. The petition is gaining support from charities - Mind, RNIB and Scope are three of the largest to offer their support. A full list is available here
http://carerwatch.com/reform/ The petition would appear to reflect the concerns of a group of Bishops, who have written in the Observer that they have concerns about this government's welfare reforms.
It also reflects concerns from various Housing providers who have written:
The petition needs to reach 100, 000 votes in order to generate debate in parliament. It will only do this if a broad range of organisations from across the country work together, passing the link to their members and encouraging people to vote and share.Please sign this petition and ask family, friends and colleagues to sign too! I would also be grateful if you could also forward the details to all your contacts or indeed promote Pat‘s Petition in any other way. With kindest regards Hannah
