SCoWR response to the DWP consultation on proposed reforms to DLA

In February 2011, SCoWR issued their response to the DWP consultation on proposed reforms to disability living allowance (DLA). This response outlines the consensus of opinion which exists among SCoWR members over key concerns with the UK Government’s proposal to replace DLA with a new benefit called personal independence payment (PIP). Many of our members are also providing their own, detailed responses to the specific consultation questions. This response is intended to complement those provided by individual members.
