Members have shown concern about changes to welfare benefits and the impact this is having on people with mental health problems. A flurry of recent lobbying by Mind, the Disability Benefits Consortium and disabled people’s organisations has raised the profile of the impact of the roll out of Universal Credit, and the Government announcement of changes to the eligibility for Personal Independence Payments.
In order to inform and update members on the current situation in relation to changes to welfare benefits, Ayaz Manji, Policy and Campaigns Officer at Mind will be delivering a free webinar for MHPF members at 10am on Friday 12 May 2017.
