Disability Benefits Research 2021

Introduction

After a long wait, the UK Government has shared their plans to improve the disability benefits system. 

Some of these proposals will be welcomed by disabled people and those with long-term conditions, but others don't go far enough and a few may even be unwelcome.

We'd like to hear about your experiences of the benefits system, and what changes you would recommend.  So, when we respond to the Government consultation about their plans, we can show them what meaningful change really looks like for disabled people and people with long-term conditions.

This survey may take up to 10-15 minutes to complete.  Most questions are optional, but anything you share with us could really help us make sure the calls for change by disabled people are heard by the Government.

This survey is being run by disability charity Leonard Cheshire, on behalf of the Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC), a national coalition of over 100 charities and organisations working towards a fairer social security system.  The closing date is Sunday 3 October 2021.
