So here we are, just over six months into the new Coalition Government’s term of office. The emergency budget and the Comprehensive Spending Review are behind us. There was, of course, very little good news for disabled people – some small wins on housing allowance for those that employ a live in carer and an extra slice of local money to be spent on social care. But that was it. The rest was negative – especially plans on work related benefits, reductions in housing benefit, reductions in the value of Disability Living Allowance and so on.
