Don't axe Access to Work for deaf and disabled! Wednesday 29 October 2014: 12 till 1pm, Old Palace Yd, SW1
On Wednesday the DWP select committee is holding its final oral evidence session for its inquiry into Access to Work. Mark Harper, Minister for Disabled People, will be giving evidence.
The StopChanges2ATW campaign will be attending the evidence session as observers and then holding a rally in Old Palace Yard to protest against changes to Access to Work that are driving Deaf and disabled people out of employment and undermining our employability.
Speakers will include Andy Greene, Disabled People Against Cuts, Geraldine O’Halloran, Inclusion London and co-founder of StopChanges2ATW, Jenny Sealey, artistic director of Graeae Theatre Company, , David Buxton CEO of the British Deaf Association.
