Disability – Podcast 2 and Work Capability Assessments

If you have gone on your romantic social policy date night to see I, Daniel Blake at the MacBob, you will have learnt about the impact Employment and Support Allowance and the injustice of Work Capability Assessments is having on people’s lives.

 

Today, the UK Government have announced a review of Work Capability Assessments. Dianne Theakstone and I discuss some of the impacts of welfare reform in our third podcast. This clip from an interview on BBC Radio 4 Today programme highlights that the biggest barrier for most disabled people is the lack of assistance they receive. Dianne and I discuss this in podcast two on disability and social policy. Download here, or use the crappy built-in player here:
