Following the introduction of the government's new "Universal Credit" welfare system, many families with disabled children will face a cut to the financial support they receive. The new system will result in these children losing up to £1400 per year (£27 per week) compared to the current system - by the time a disabled child reaches 16, this could cost the family £22,000. Because the support is means tested the poorest families could stand to lose the most. Financial support is crucial to help these families with the costs of raising a disabled child and manage their extra caring responsibilities; now is the time to make a stand and ensure that these proposals do not get approved. Day care and respite centres are in daily danger of closure, these centres offer so much to so many that they can not be allowed to be closed - sign this petition to stop this cuts.
