Disability Benefits to cease

Hello

I don`t know whether there is any members this will apply to, but if not, you might have family members who could be affected.

Are you aware that the U.K. government is planning to STOP all *ATTENDANCE ALLOWANCE* and *DISABILITY LIVING ALLOWANCE* payments, and instead of giving the money to the claimant /care giver, they are planning on handing the money to SOCIAL SERVICES - and they will be the decision makers as to who gets what.

*DLA and AA threat*

This is very BAD news indeed if they go down this route.

There is a PETITION online.

In my humble this is not unsimilar to that which is contained in Obama`s Health Care Bill, and which many Americans believe will leave the most vulnerable members of society without the care they need and deserve.

Below, is one such father....
