Below Standard: MDUK's Assessment of the Benefits System
28 February 2020
Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK) have launched a report based on an in-depth survey of 592 people which highlights the problems that people living with a muscle-wasting condition are experiencing with the benefits application, assessment and appeals process. This is leaving many people struggling to get the support they are entitled to, and it's having an impact on their mental health, quality of life and independence.
They are calling on the Government to take action to address the failings of the benefits system and are asking you to share their report with your MP.
