DWP tell woman with learning disabilities she could work out a complex budget


Yet another DWP atrocity, but what is happening to all these assessors who appear to be unable to conduct assessments correctly.

How can a person who is unable to do basic simple maths be assessed by the assessor, who said she could work out a complex budget.

Are theses assessor still assessing, been or being retrained or have they been dismissed.

A DWP spokesperson said: “Universal Credit staff give tailored support to people with learning disabilities and all our assessors have significant clinical experience.” How with all the evidence can a DWP spokesperson say this?

The DWP, certainly have some explaining to do.

All assessments should be suspended, until every DWP assessor is questioned about any assessments they have incorrectly completed.

If this is not done we can only assume that these assessors are incorrectly assessing with the complete full support of the DWP.
