As the changes surrounding many welfare benefits come closer to being implemented, more and more people are starting to realise the devastating effect that there will be on their lives.
Also, those not affected at the beginning now understand too that the safety net they may need in the future is being stripped away.
From benefit cuts, care criteria tightened, charges increased, abolition of Independent Living Fund, loss of Legal aid, proposed bedroom tax and so the list goes on.
Grassroot groups are increasing in memberships, voices are being raised louder. Their strength growing, as are the campaigns.
CarerWatch will carry on supporting them and help raise awareness where and when we can.
One such group is WOWPetition – you can read about some of their team here
They have submitted a petition to the governments website.
