Motion – National Independent Living Support Service – DPAC


Disabled People Against Cuts and our allies in the Reclaiming Our Futures Alliance are campaigning for a National Independent Living Support Service capable of upholding disabled people’s rights to independent living and building on what was so effective about the Independent Living Fund before it was closed in spite of enormous opposition in June 2015.

Please call on your union branches and CLPs to pass motions supporting the campaign. Thanks to Sean McGovern for the wording of a suggested motion as below. If you would like someone to speak at your branch meeting please send details to mail@dpac.uk.net.

One thought on “Motion – National Independent Living Support Service – DPAC

  1. Social Care in Crisis

    We all know that there is a major crisis in Social Care not just in Sheffield, but all over the UK. This is in a large part due to the lack of persons willing to come into the Care Industry, of which the low pay is a prime factor.

    Please therefore, could you consider the following

    #pay #employed #wage #funding #government #serviceproviders #living

    Could you look at promoting the Petition ‘Pay all employed carers the Living Wage, created by FLASh (Families Lobbying & Advising Sheffield) a group of family carers of relatives with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism in Sheffield.

    Petition link https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/236151

    We need this Tory Government to end Austerity Cuts to Local Authorities and then increase the Grants to these Authorities so they can fund Care Service Providers to be able to pay their care workers at least the Living Wage.

    Please also see the HFT report ‘Sector Pulse Check’ https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn%3Aaaid%3Ascds%3AUS%3A69ab92ff-75b8-4455-8f47-8b53c46e5236

    If the Petition attains 10,000 signatures, the Government will respond and if 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for debate in Parliament.

    Please support and share to work colleagues, family & friends, MP and Local Councillors.

    Chris Sterry

    Vice-chair of FLASh
